We started with LR some weeks ago and everything was going fine, but suddenly my twins, especially the girl, started being afraid of some of the animals pictures and videos in Little Reader (specially goats, sheep and cows, don't ask me why...). They start to shout and cry as soon as they appear on the screen. Has this happened to you? What did you do? For the moment I'm only showing them some categories (they like action words), but I would like to go on with the curriculum!! Any ideas??
Thank you!

You are not alone   closedeyes  My toddler can also get  so scared when watching YCCR (especially of a hippopotamus, a disguised boy, a man saying "Hello" on the phone, an ostrich, and other unexplainable things I can't remember now). A fun fact BTW: he quickly learned those words! Wink

Also, I've recently bought a DK Eyewitness DVD about rocks & minerals, there is a skeleton who opens his mouth when a rock falls on him, my son got so scared and didn't want to see any skeleton after that, I had to skip a whole chapter in our science curriculum  Sad So what I do is quite simple: just skip the slides, fast forward the video, or show it to him in a month or so, hoping his attitude will change.  blush BTW, I never tell him that a monster or a ghost are scary things, I emphasize they are just imaginary creatures.

With LR, you may try one or more of the following:

- Show them only the word flash, you can skip the pictures & videos,
- Customize the lesson with pictures of  "friendlier"  cows, sheep and goats  big grin

- Skip the lessons for the moment and try again in a month or so.

Thank you very much A_BC! I'll take your idea of customising the lessons... I'll remove the videos and maybe change the images for some small lambs or something like that...  confused

Hi Nplight!!! My daughter does not like animals, especially farm animals. When she listened Old Macdonald has a farm... she always began to shout... I have said to my husband that we should take her a farm where she can see farm animals... wub  wub   Well, she has changed her attitude towards animals a little. Sometimes she is quiet and looking at them. However, if your twins are afraid of animals you could avoid them for a period of time. She shouldn´t be forced to see somethin g that dislikes her. Good luck!

I found my daughter did the same thing when she saw something new for the first time. The first time I noticed it was about two months after starting YBCR (she was 5 months old) and the DVD moved onto Circles and other Shapes. She cried at the same point of the DVD when ever she saw the circle. I turned it off at that point cos i wanted it to be fun for her. But i would then show her again the next day and we would get a little bit more past it each time before we would turn it off.
She still kind of does it when she sees something very new or unexpected, she almost protests to really new ideas but I still try and expose her to whatever it is but in a very positive way. I make sure there are things she does know before and after and it doesnt take long for her to relax into the idea of it and usually whatever made her cry then becomes one of her favourite thing for awhile

Thank you for all your suggestions, I will try them all... I've noticed that she has a problem with big, moving animals as well... I showed them a video of dolphins in youtube, and she was scared as well...  On the other hand, we can see sheep from our window and she loves that... maybe that's the problem, she's used to see the animals far from us and suddenly they are sooooo close...

By the way A_BC, I saw the video with your toddler reading in four languages!!! Really impressive, congratulations!! You both have a very good Spanish accent!  yes

Thanks a lot! That's very encouraging, especially that I don't speak it fluently. I am trying to study the language more often so I can communicate properly with my son during our Spanish afternoons (twice a week).

Oh, I wanted to add one more thing, getting scared during toddlerhood is part of their emotional development. You can find out about it here: http://www.babycenter.com/0_easing-your-toddlers-fears_1503644.bc

It's funny how they're scared of things isn't it??  Our LO hates puppets but is absolutely MESMERISED with the animals on LR.
We have finished our trial and love LR - just need to get the full thing now!
