What could have happened that caused him to develop such fear?

My son is sensitive and gets scared easily. He had a butterfly fly towards him and it touched him slightly and he’s been scared since. Birds it happened at the beach because he had food in his hand and bird tried to get it. Dog he’s scared well because it’s a dog when he was younger a dog was running towards him and it scared my son. It was my neighbors dog and she was still training him. I think the dog was the first encounter he had where the animal was coming towards him. Second was the bird and third butterfly. He’s also scared of cats but not as bad as butterflies and dogs.

Hello, sorry for late answer.

I Belive thar your son need a dose of Ignatia amara.
Give one dose 200C. After this wait for 4 - 5 days.

Update *****
Thank you for the remedy. My son has over come the fear of butterfly. He is still afraid of dogs hoping it will go away as well.
Recently he has started to make this poker face when you can’t tell if he’s lying or not. He fakes his understanding in school so the teachers give him easier work. It’s his way of getting out of more work. He always rushes his work. Doesn’t read and guesses his way out. He is good at making you feel guilty even though he is the one who did wrong. He doesn’t want to admit his mistake. I really have to be tough and mean for him to get him to tell me the truth. Is there anything that can help him. I don’t want this to become a permanent habit of his as he grows older. He will be turning 9 in July. He’s gained a lot of weight he loves to eat carbs stills. More salty then sweet cravings.
Please help!
Thank you

Hi Am123

Please wait for parakletos to respond for one more week or whatever you think is reasonable.

If no success you can give your son Hyoscyamus. Potency 200. One dose every 10-12 days for upto 6/7 doses.

I’d like to give update. I do notice my son is a little open about his feelings. He admits he doesn’t want to learn because he thinks it’s boring, he will get the answer wrong, he just wants to play/have fun, and that he doesn’t like anything when it comes to learning. He does have fear or failure adhd and anxiety. He hates going outside to play or exercise. When ever we use the word competition he runs away even if it’s for fun!
Any help please !

Please write a note on the medicine given, number of doses, gap between them, time of last dose, observations in energy, sleep, appetite other general factors---overall how would you rate the medicine's action?. And what happened with the last few doses? You didn't mention about ADHD in earlier posts when was the diagnosis given?
