    Hi Madhavi,
    Kids are unique and each kid has his/her set of fears which would go off on its own in time.
    All we should do as mothers is empathize with the child and not tell the child that it is nothing...Then slowly explaining the facts to the child...The child would eventually come out of the fear.
    Hope you and your LO are doing good now.

    Children being afraid of flushing toilets especially the powerful ones that are in schools and instituations is absolutely normal developmental behavior and will stop as soon as the child has matured more cognitively. It is classic situation in human development texts. Just avoid situations where the child is in this situation. Explaining doesn't help as the cognitive understanding of the child is not such that it can be properly understood.
