"Dragons come when you least expect them. You turn aroundâ€¦ and there they are." Worries, fears, anxietiesâ€¦ they are all dragons and they sneak up on most of us at one time or another. Lots of people get them. Even really really good people get them. And sometimes they are hard to get rid of. So what can a young boy with a bad case of the dragons do? He can pretend they are not thereâ€¦ but they are. He can pretend that they are really quite harmlessâ€¦ but they usually are not. Hugs from his mom help. Looking his dragon straight in the eye at least once every day helps even more. But most reassuring of all is the reminder that dragons don't stay forever.
