Many parents and non-parents alike understand that children have fears. Some childhood fears are outgrown among others linger, and that is for the most part simple and easy , normal to cope with for the parent. What are the results though, when one child has a fear of something the other child enjoys or desires to do? For instance, one child could have a fear of dogs and yet another only uses a puppy like a birthday present. Or one child may love go-karts and roller coasters, however the other features a fear of rides, including Kids Ride On. Ensuring family fun at the amusement center or entertainment park can be difficult with opposite wants and needs. Below are five suggestions to help manage this type of outing.


-Observe Frequently it's best to walk the child with the anxiety about the rides around the park and gauge the reaction to various rides and activities. It could be that the parent soon realizes there are particular types of rides that invoke fear. Maybe one which spins a great deal or perhaps it's the one that switches into a dark tunnel. Once that is known, avoid those types of rides to check out ones that both (or all) children may take part in and enjoy.

-Start Small Sometimes, the simplest way to work through anxiety is to address it in slow, gentle, basic steps. For amusement center rides, it could be that beginning with something slow understanding that remains on a lawn is best. A train ride, or a slow loop with the go-kart track, or even time in the moonwalk might help ease tensions and fears for more "grown-up" rides.

-Ride Along There are many kids rides that may also accommodate an adult. Offer to ride using the child and speak to them throughout the process. By having fun being a parent, the enjoyment and thrill of rides is modeled in a healthy way. Also, when the child becomes too upset, parents will be there to comfort and offer a hug after the ride is finished. Also, if there is a sibling, friend, or relative who is along with the outing, this is sometimes a good time for those to ride together and for the child with fears to determine other kids laughing and enjoying rides.

-Talk it Over Perhaps among the best tips would be to talk to the little one who is nervous about rides before the trip to the park. Explain that there will be rides and how the park operates the rides in the safe manner. This can be a time to explain that once over a ride, the child must delay until it is over prior to off, to not try being too brave or keep up with others who aren't afraid.

-Find Alternatives Sometimes, the parents must accept that one child will ride many rides and yet another simply won't. This doesn't mean that trips towards the entertainment park are out of the question, it just implies that there will be certain activities not gone through by all. When the rides are occurring, try to find other fun activities for example mini golf, arcade games or perhaps the moonwalk to occupy the non kids ride rider then sit back and bask in their enjoyment and fun.
