Today, Valerie from Chronicles of a Babywise Mom, is writing about what to do when your child is afraid of the dark. She's got some great ideas to help you and your little ones get through this phase- beyond that of the obvious nightlight suggestion! You'll want to check it out!

"We all have fears. Even we adults, who are rational, experienced people, have fears. Sometimes we adults have fear of the dark. When my husband is out of town, suddenly my dark house seems very scary. If I, as an adult, can be scared sometimes, it isn't surprising that children are at times scared of the dark.

Fears can be a normal part of development. As children get older and have imaginations, they can be scared of the dark. As you approach the situation when your child is afraid of the dark, try to remain patient and understanding. Remember that sometimes you are afraid of the unknown also and also that this is a normal thing. Here are some ways to help your child when she is scared of the dark."
