Bearings in the night, lose bearings

 
Bearings in the night, lose bearings

Fear of the dark normally occurs because you lose your bearings.
Naturally, fear of the dark expresses other fears that a child may have.
In darkness, their usual reference points disappear and the bedrooom, that reassuring place, becomes strange and frightening.
The dressing gown hung up on the door turns into a witch, toy cars become goblins, etc.
If your child tries to get up, he can't find the way to the door or light switch. 
This creates a fear of turning off the light.
