Dendrophobia – fear of trees


Both my kids have it. What did I do wrong? Whenever we walk or drive through trees or tall bushes, both of the kids will coach themselves, “It’s ok, they’re just trees.” Or, “Trees aren’t scary. Trees are nice!” Because they’ve heard it so often. At least we are on the road to recovery. But it adds a whole new facet of adventure to walks in the park. Did you have a phobia when you were a kid?
