I was and still am pretty scared of the dark. When I was a child if my room was pitch black dark there was no way I was sleeping by myself. If i was alone I would get up many times during the night and would not get good sleep at all. My parents tried everything from checking under my bed to promising me they were right around the corner but nothing comforted me like having a night light in my room.
Hello friend...Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question :-)
i understand your condition. i want to assure you that most children even some grown ups face the same challenges. To overcome this fear, you need to develop your coping skills alternative ways to respond to such situations, such as "being brave" and thinking positive thoughts.Try and make being in the dark fun. Play flashlight tag. Have a treasure hunt and search for things that glow in the dark. Use your imagination to fight imaginary fears, like monsters. Many families have found “monster spray” to be a wonderful way to help a child cope with bedtime fears. Some children are comforted by having a pet nearby for nighttime company (even a bedside fish tank may help). It is also important that you keep away from scary TV shows, videos or stories that may add to your fears. finally learn to relax by applying some relaxation strategies to help you relax at bedtime and fall asleep. For example, you can imagine a relaxing scene, such as lying on the beach or watching a sunset. This will give you something else to think about while lying in bed to help distract you from your fearful thoughts.
