my grandson is five & has not lost a tooth yet but knows that he will. he is all freaked out about a fairy coming into his room he ask his parents if when he did lose his first tooth could they just e-mail the tooth fairy & tell her so she wouldn't come to his room. It is funny but i think it's sad to that he is afraid of that happening. What do u think?

Hello Aunty, can you ask him to put in a good word for me with the tooth fairy please? Personally my answer won't go down to well I'm sure but as the tooth fairy is actually imaginary but the idea is scaring your grandson then he should just be told the truth right off. I always presumed that children just go along with these ideas to humour their parents anyway but he needs to know there is no such thing as the tooth fairy, it's all made up. I can't remember actually ever believing in anything like that, including santa, but I always had a very questioning streak even from a young age and the idea of fairies just didn't seem very realistic. My own son has inherited my cynicism and the only part of it he believes is that some money will materialise under his pillow but he knows exactly where it comes from. And believe me it hasn't ruined his childhood. So I think of good injection of reality is called for, there's enough real things in the world for your grandson to be afraid of without the need to invent childhood creepies.

I agree w/you. I haven't seen him since i heard this story in fact i wasn't told about it my son put it on facebook. He has always been afraid of things & i don't like for him to be that way. He can be & is all boy but at times i see this in him & it worries me. They treat him too much as an adult i think sometimes.

I don't see that telling him about fairies is treating him like an adult but I don't know why parents do tell them all these made up things in the first place. If the child believes in any of that then he's only going to be disappointed when he finds out the truth and wonders why his parents lied to him when they are meant to be the ones teaching him never to tell lies. I asked my own son for his opinion on this after responding earlier and he just laughed at the idea of anyone believing in this kind of stuff, chip off the old block I'd say. If you're son has got time to put things up about your son on an internet site why can't he phone or email you to keep in touch? It must be horrible to find out things about your grandson on the internet Aunty.

I didn't mean telling him about the fairy was treating like an adult but talking about other things that they do. his mom is sort of a scary person about things & i think it has rubbed off on him. She wouldn't scare him intentionally at all. They just pick up & sense things sometimes that they don't need to & i think u need to be careful what u say in front of small children. That is a very good point, niece is why i found out about this on fb.

hi antiquelady! i hope ur grandson did not see the movie tooth fairy because it was a horror film. and i did not watch it either. but it was really funny of him telling his parents to email it. i think he just need to know that he wont get hurt and he will never know when it's there. like santa, the tooth fairy loves kids. :)

Oh the poor little tyke! Someone needs to send him an email pretending to be the tooth fairy and explain what she does and that's it ok and nothing to be afraid of and that's she's looking forward to seeing him sleeping like a good boy while she exchanges his tooth for a shiny new quarter...........

Suggest he leaves his tooth down stairs in a special place near his mum and the tooth fairy will sort it out for him,poor little lad.The things kids worry about,if money or presents were envolved none of mine used to worry.He is a sensitive little guy isn't he ,bless him.

Children have all sorts of interesting fears. I guess they could arrange the tooth fairy to visit another part of the house!

HI JILL, I think it's sad that they worry at that young age. I think sometimes they can be too smart about some things. Bless their hearts, they have a lifetime to worry about things.

That's pretty cute. Maybe you can just tell him that the tooth fairy is very light like a feather and he won't even hear or feel her. Maybe the tooth fairy even waves her wand to make sure he has a pleasant nights sleep.

iT IS TO HIM UNDOUBTEDLY, BLESS HIS HEART. I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF ANYONE BEING AFRAID OF THE TOOTH FAIRY. hE HASN'T EVEN LOST A TOOTH YET & IS ALWAYS WORRYING ABOUT IT. I thought about suggesting the fairy leaving it at my house but don't know how that would go over w/his parents, probably wouldn't.I think i will ask my son about that. Don't want him worrying over it. He'll have enough to worry about when he is grown. Thanks JEN.

Poor little kid. Tell him not to worry. I have told this fairy not to come into his room and scare him. And tell him that fairies are very friendly and do not harm us at all. Provided he is a good boy and does not eat too many sweets!!!

I think it is cute too,but he's been scared somehow by somebody that the tooth fairy is bad. Try to console him and tell him the tooth fairy is like Santa Clause and he or she is good and not bad like we see monsters on TV. He'll be fine, just needs some extra support.

Why would his mom want to scare him about the tooth fairy? I can see bigger kids scaring him, but mom? I know he's a sweetheart, but part of being a kid is the tooth fairy. Like santa clause. Guess it's up to you to fix what others have made bad for this boy. You go girl !

i'm not saying his mom scared him of the fairy but know he has had fears of things before. i don't think his mom would scare him intentionally over anything but i do think they need to treat him more as a child instead of an adult like they do.

That is soooo cute. I'd tell him that the tooth fairy just knows when he'll lose his teeth. It's one of her magic abilities and her well kept secrets. I'd say, just put the tooth at his bed side and in the morning, he'll have some money next to him.

It's funny and we all know that kids say the darnest things. Email the tooth fairy... heehe very creative and original I have to say. I can't help but chuckle on that. Kinda cute too. On the other hand a kid has a lot of imagination. That all depends on how you want it to come out sooner or later. It's like he doesn't know the difference from a tooth fairy and the bogeyman. Have you tried talking to him and giving him some confidence that a tooth fairy is someone that we shouldn't be afraid of? That stories of fairies are something on the nicer side of life? Like good old santa isn't really gonna bite or something. I think it's just a matter of talking to him to give him some good guidance about nice stories and all that. I was a kid once and I always loved to sit down and listen to good stories from my grannies. That usually keeps me feel safe talking to my grannies. At a young age I always thought that my grannies knew everything and were the best in handling things and as a matter of fact I still do. I still believe my grannies know more alot about the world than anyone else. Cheers!

You are welcome. Yes I loved my grannies a lot. I learned so many things from them. They were very wise. And they had a way to talk to little kids. Specially my grandma. She always knew what to say to me. I grew up in a really tough neighborhood, I was surviving during my teens. I had to be tough sometimes ruthless to the baddies to survive. And granny was always there, she seemed to always have a nice outlook at things no matter how harsh it was. That's where I learned to balance good and evil pretty well. Dealt good with plenty of good in return. Figured the bad and misguided from the really bad and beyond help and bullied the bullies. Granny was really something. The neighborhood tough guys seem to bow down to her. I wonder what she was keeping under her long skirt. Shotgun with flowers perhaps. heheh. Gee, I miss her already. I want my granny!!!

Awwww that's sad. It makes me wonder why he feels like he does. Maybe if you talk to him a little more, you might find out. Tooth fairies leave money behind for their teeth, like a dollar or two so it'll be a good thing, not a bad thing. Maybe then he'll find the joy in having the tooth fairy come into his room. It's worth a try.

We push our kids so hard about being safe,stranger danger, I think it is kind of sad. Might be easier on the parents, though. Not having to sneak in to leave the quarter or whatever the tooth fairy leaves now.

I told my son i had never heard of a child being afraid of the tooth fairy, i think it's said to. even tho he's all boy & tough as nails when it comes to sports & things like that he has always been afriad of things coming into his room. maybe by the time he loses a tooth he'll understand it better or we 'll work out something. Thanks for responding.
