I started having this problem, I was confused. I have never let my kids watch anything remotly scary, not even cartoons. I have even held out letting watch to many disney yet because of the witches, and ghosts and such. But this year some child told my son that there is ghosts in his closet and that they will eat him . well no matter what I have said to him, no matter what I did nothing helped, and he has been afraid to go to bed. I prayed with him and sang to him, but when I left the room he cried. No light on would help and so I was at wits end. Until today!
I told him last night, tomorrow we are going to go get a special ghost chasing light, a light that will make anything spookie run for there lives.
I went to the mall, and got a care bear, night light that has stars that move as the lamp warms up ( like a bubble lamp) He was so happy and he is now asleep !!
I told him, whwen the stars move around it is working,and all the scary stuff can not come in. I feel like a good mommy tonight yeah I found something that worked and he's happy and I am sooooo happy!!
what have you done when your child is scared?
I let him sleep with me, but that only adds to the problem, I think this light is a winner
