My 7 year old has recently become terrified of storms. I know that it started after her sister's friend told her that lightning causes fire. The problem that we are experiencing is that she will not go outside if there is even one cloud in the sky. She checks the sky every 2 to 3 minutes and gives us an update on the weather. She panics when it simply rains without thunder and lightning. This is not a healthy fear; it has crippled her outgoing lifestyle. Any suggestions?
