Re: 2yr old has became TERRIFIED of the drain.
I would take him out and drain it once he is out of the bathroom. It is an advancement in his development. He has now learned that other things can go down the drain and it is scary as he fears he could go down also. I didn't think you were belittling his fear at all. To me there is no point in making him experience it as right now he is terrified. As he developments more he will come to understand that he can't fit down the drain and the fear will fade away.
