Fear of Santa


My son and I went to see Santa Claus to get our annual photo taken but this year he would not get on his lap. What happened?


As children get older, their senses develop in ways we sometimes overlook. I believe what your son is going through is a normal fear associated with being in near proximity to a very rotund stranger clad in red.

In professional terms we call this "CLAUSE-traphobia".
