Phobia is another name for fear. There are many people who are scared of various things. There are specific phobias and each of these phobia have a specific name too. The phobias can be wide ranging and each of these phobias are also named based on the fear. Fear of heights, fear of spiders, fear of animals, fear of enclosed spaces, fear of people are some of the various types of fears that exist in people. Each of these phobias have a specific name too, so that they can be identified universally.

There are many causes of these phobias. This article gives a list of the various causes that make a person to fear certain things.

1. Childhood fear:

Many children are fearful of certain things. This may be due to a dream that they had or it could be because of something that was told to them when they were a child. This fear can be of simple things like spiders or dogs and the fear increases as they grow up and finally it becomes a phobia that they are not able to face the specific thing.

2. Upbringing:

There are certain children who have really troubled childhood. This causes the individuals to have fear of various things that they might have encountered as a child. This increases as they grow and turn into a phobia in later age.

3. The environment of the child:

The child may have lived in protected environment and may have been shielded from various things by the parents or the society and when the child faces the particular thing for the first time in the life, it can cause a fear in the child which increases as the child grows. This finally becomes so much that it is considered to be a phobia.

4. Experiences in life:

There are times during which a person may have had a bad experience at a particular point in their life and this can cause a phobia in the individual. There are times when a person may have been bitten by a dog as a child and this causes a phobia in the person about dogs. This is how phobias occur due to life experiences.

5. Genetics:

There are certain things that run in the family and these are the phobias that are caused by the genetics. A person may have a parent or grandparent with a phobia and it gets transferred to the child too. It could also be due to the elders in the family talking about their phobia that the child also gets it into the mind.

These are the various causes of phobias in people. Adequate counseling is very essential in decreasing the phobia. In spite of various activities, the phobias in certain people can never be deleted and they have to live with them all their life. Taking adequate care of the child can also prevent the development of phobias in children, because when the child has a phobia and grows with it, the phobia becomes deeply ingrained in the child's mind and it is very difficult to treat it at a later stage.
