Another idea for easing thunderphobia ...

Val Olszyk shared another idea she uses to combat thunderphobia. She calls it "the popcorn treatment":
"When I don't feel like running outside to play or want to just relax and watch a movie (Sunday night for instance) and there is a thunderstorm on the way I pop in the microwave popcorn. Then I have all the dogs lie in front of the couch and when I see a flash, I pick up the popcorn and start to throw it at each dog (saying their names to indicate who the popcorn is for). The dogs are so focused on the popcorn (which is delivered around the time of the boom) they don't even notice the storm."
Thanks, Val!
