Hi, this really isn't a taming or bonding question per se, Olaf is extremely friendly and people oriented. He already steps up to come out of the cage on day two of being home and also eats millet from our hands. I am looking for advice for a child who is scared of a bird. Our youngest daughter had a bad experience with a female that we had. The female bit her extremely hard and drew blood. We are not forcing contact with Olaf, but she is terrified of him. I have shown her that he won't bite, and she has watch him preen the hair on my arms.

Does anyone have any advice on how to proceed, should we just let it go and hope that eventually she will grow more comfortable around Olaf?
