The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark

To be scared is a natural thing for children. Fear, as other positive and negative feelings, is a part of life. Thus, it is not a problem if a child is sometimes insecure or doubtful and fantasizes about dreadful creatures and obstacles to be defeated; however it is also important to show them what they really can and must overcome, so that they understand that life is only complete with our fears.
