Our expert says:
It probably is normal, though bothersome. Some kids are more affected than others by such warnings. Some seem to file away the advice in a more intellectual way, others respond more emotionally to recognizing that there are such risks in the world, and for a time will be over-aware of the dangers of the world. Take it calmly, and discuss with her all the risks or fears she is expressing, taking them respectfully, but trying to help her get them into proportion, and to see how she can effectively respond to such situations. I think sometimes the creche's and others talk about the risk, without necessarily empowering the child to feel that they can do things to protect themselves, and not to feel so helpless.
