Ok so u know that she is scared of everything except her shadow - i shudder to think if she gets to that stage - i have tried every technique: cuddling her and telling her she is ok and there's nothing to be scared of, pinpointing her fears and talking about them; ignoring most of it; not answering her for the most part, do her fear and be grateful for it; push past her fears and see what's on the other side - nothing is working and i don't know why - can anyone help?

My nephew was actually scared of his shadow !!! Theres nothing my sister could do he just eventually learnt that things didn't hurt him and he grew out of his fears over time, he's 19 now and we all laugh with him at the things he was scared of like his shadow, walking down the stairs, glow in the dark ceiling stickers of moons and stars to name just a few he would also worry imencley if h watched the news that we would have a war or something. Hopefully you little girl will just grow out of it too
