Pupaphobia: Fear of Puppet

Most kids will find puppets funny, but not this kid. He's got a severe form of pupaphobia (the irrational fear of puppets). I don't think he's making this up, and I sure hope that he outgrows it.

I know people who have misophobia (irrational fear of dirt and germs), chemophobia (chemicals), and flutter-phobia, so I don't find the kid's reaction as funny though I'm sure many people would. But it sure is interesting: Hit play or go to Link [YouTube] - Thanks Juergen!

Do you have an irrational fear of something? What is it?

That child is autistic. His fear/anxiety, hiding behind others, and systemic behavior of hitting his hed with a chair is classic autism. I hope his parents are getting him the therapies he needs.
