Hi Drama Mama,
And welcome back, I see it has been a little while since you have posted. I think this would be best discussed with a professional. But in my opinion, just make sure she feels safe. Try to act as if everything is normal. She is too young to have to worry with financial and other adult issues. I know my grandpa died when I was around that age. He was like my father because I didn't have one. But the whole thing made me feel insecure. At that age they look to adults for guidance and safety. We have to supply that for them.
I don't know what would of caused her phobia of dolls. I know I didn't and still don't like clowns. Or garden gnomes. I don't know why.
But yea, I think you should talk to a psychologist or any type of therapist, maybe even your doctor, and discuss what would be the best thing to do.
Do keep posting. I hope that things don't effect your daughter like they did me. Do take care of you too. That is very immportant for the well being of everybody.
