We have been dealing with some complicated issues recently, including a CPS scare and lots of bureaucracy because of my UC. It is all over now, but now my three year old DD screams bloody murder every time someone is at the door, even if I tell her someone will be coming beforehand. Just now, the doorbell rang and we weren't expecting anyone. My DD SCREAMED and was clinging to me like her life depended on it. She then started saying "Mama protect Kaya" over and over again. Apparently, the whole experience was traumatizing to her. I didn't realize that she was so affected by the whole episode, and I feel really guilty. Any ideas how I can help her let go of these fears? I am so sorry my baby is so scared <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">.
