My 2 year old son (just turned 2 last month) seems to be scared of other kids around his age and younger. He becomes EXTREMELY upset (screaming, crying, hitting himself, arching his back) when he hears a child but doesn't see them. We were just on a long flight home and he screamed the whole way because there was a young baby in the row in front of us making cooing sounds.
I've been removing ourselves from situations when he gets upset (kinda hard to do on a plane at 35, 000 ft!) and am
hoping this is just something he's going through right now. He's his usual self the rest of the time, but hearing another kid really sets him off.
Anyone else have this experience?
Thanks in advance,
