: My friend's daughter is 11 and is deathly afraid of thunderstorms.To the point where she will scream at the top of her lungs. My friend has said she tries to ignore her but it doesnt work.(don't know if she really does tho)Her daughter will wake up the house during the storms. So I wondered if any one had any advice I could pass on to my friend.thanks....

My 3 1/2 yr old DD is very afraid of thunder. I explained to her that the thunder is just the clouds moving durring the storm and bumping into each other. She seems to be ok with that.
