    Question 3 y.o. afraid of darkness

    Our 3 y.o. is afraid of darkness and too scared to sleep by herself
    We trained her well to use her own bedroom, but now it's all about screaming, screeching and crying. It started not so long ago. And I'm sure that it's not connected with scary movies, since we don't allow her to see anything inappropriate.
    And I understand her well, at her age I was terrified every night. DH got used to check under her bed for monsters and such, but I don't think it's helping. We even bought her a night light after reading other parents advices and reviews - but no success.
    I ran out of ideas.
    We can't sleep with her on daily basis, since I don't feel like it's a good solution.

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
