fear

Last night my son exhibited pure fear. That was the first time it happened and I can feel his distress while it was going on. The cause? Him and his father were watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. You would think he will not feel anything just from watching the movie but he did. I was in the computer when he ran up to me. The scene was when Harry was fighting the giant snake. I brought him back to the couch where he was sitting and watched the movie with them. It did not stop him being afraid (I don't know whether for Harry or because of the snake) and he even covered his face and only peeked from time to time. The husband was thrilled with his son's reaction to the movie because he said it was so unexpected. Well, at least now I know that my son's development is on track. I thought at first he does not fear anything considering he climbs up on everything and is never afraid of falling down. I did not know it will only take a movie for him to be afraid, lol.
