Help!! My 7 yr. old has an "unnatural" fear of any and all insects. It has gotten so bad that he will no longer sleep in on the top bunk bcause he claims he saw a spider in the bed a few weeks ago. He screams and yells if we even try to put him near the bed, but this only occurs at night. We have read to him Genesis 1 where God has given man dominion over all creatures. And we have explained to him what dominion is. We have even compared his feelings to the story of David and Goliath ( so that he can overcome this fear that seems like a giant to him) I am at a loss of what else we can do.
