Our expert says:
There are a number of possibilities, but first it's necessary to calmly discuss this with him. Not in a way that would make him hesitate to admit what he's feeling fearful of , but maybe along the lines of being puzzled about why he is so admirably confident on his own in other situations, but so worried ( a better term than "scared" ) about these particular situations. Maybe he was scared when someone approached the car or tried to get into it, but speculating isn't as useful as hearing his own views on this. Maybe he could be asked to draw a picture of him in the car and what he fears might happen. I wonder whether he is identically worried when on his own in the car, as when he is there in charge of the younger children ?
