“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.”
