Your child used to sleep so well, but now calls for you, begs you to stay, leaves the light on, or even sleeps in your bed, away from the monsters hiding in the dark...
How can you help children get over their fear and get a good night's sleep?
First of all, you need to find out where the source of the fear lies, and then help them to get used to the strange world of darkness.
Don't forget to take a look at our selection of books. Each story involves a character who is confronted with a fear of the dark. Reading these tales together with your child will help them release their emotions and overcome night-time worries.
