Phobias/Fear of children


Why would an adult female be afraid to interact with children?

Sarah, fears/phobias are generally initiated by some form of traumatic experience/memory that isn't processed or healed naturally.

The fear could be of "not doing it right" when interacting with children in some manner or perhaps some memory of a child being injured or out of control or ??? might be a trigger for this kind of fear. Perhaps a memory of a parent who was unable to handle a child during some kind of crisis might be a cause.

There are probably hundreds/thousands of possibilities. Without knowing the history behind the person involved, it is pretty difficult to ascertain the original cause.

Fears and phobias can often be neutralized and healed by learning the EFT process available all over the internet. See sites like and for more information and how to access local practitioners for help.
