My son turned 2 this May. Since last month or so he is getting scared of almost everything! Especially Pressure cooker (whistle!!) He will always tell me "not to cook"! Sounds of anything like bike, car, door bell, telephone rings etc.... Is it normal?

i dont think its normal at all,,, i would have to ask if he gets out enough? u know walk the streets go to the mall or store? he migh have a very sensitive hearing and it might look like hes scared??? unless hes running and hiding?? i know some autistic kids r scared of loud sounds or any to that fact,, i would talk to a doctor if they say it nothing try to film it happening so its not just u saying it A mommy of two

I think it's very normal to be afraid of loud or sudden noises at that age. As long as he hasn't suffered any sort of trauma that could have triggered this I wouldn't worry about it. It's the kind of thing kids outgrow.
