Parent Perceptions of Children's Fears.
Jones, Elizabeth A.; Borgers, Sherry
Elementary School Guidance and Counseling, v23 n1 p10-15 Oct 1988
Examined fears of fifth grade students and ways in which their parents perceived the fears. Responses from 66 students and 47 parents suggest that children have more fears than parents think they have. Children reported concerns over accidents, nuclear war, and death, while parents expected children to have more fears about scary movies, the dark, and dangerous animals. (NB)
