Fear Among Us
Presentation and discussion
Fear is a natural emotion among adults as well as children. It is an instinct of self-preservation thanks to which we are aware of various dangers. At the right level, it can encourage a reasonable and inventive reaction, but if it is too much it can be paralyzing. The members of Genesis, a Bosnian non-governmental association, teach children how to distinguish true fear from purposefully created imaginary threats. Let’s learn with them how to work with fear and not be afraid of it.
