    Each Child is Vulnerable Each Child is Vulnerable Infants and very young  children pick up the  stress, fear, and  anxiety of their parents  and caregivers.  Very young children  are the most  vulnerable to harm  and also the most  likely to develop fear.  Preschool age children  are aware that they  are smaller than  others; they are  exploring their world  but uncertain about  what to expect; they  are sensitive to  criticism; they are  afraid of specific  things, such as things  that hurt them like  bees or  immunizations.
