I think Prudie's advice is good, but in my experience a someone that expects everyone to cater to their demands is not very receptive to compromise.
When I was very young, my mom took me ToTing to the neighbor's "haunted house". The neighbor's son had dressed up like Dracula and was lying in a coffin. If you wanted candy, you had to be brave enough to grab it off of his chest. I started crying and was scared. My mother took me away and after I had calmed down a bit she explained that it was just neighbor's son in a costume and all the other "tricks" were fake. Because of what she told me, the next year I was able to go through it without getting upset- even brave enough to grab some candy
It never occurred to my mother to demand the neighbors tear down their haunted house because it scared me. In fact, doing that would have done me no favors at all- I never would have known how to overcome my own fears. I feel sorry for kids that have these helicopter parents; they never learn to overcome fear or take responsibility for their own safety.
