Peaceful Family Bedtimes With These Top Tips For Overcoming Night Time Phobias

Bedtime is stressful for any mother. It’s that part of the day we most want to get out of the way. In truth, while adults can think of nothing better than slipping between the sheets, children see sleeping as wasting time. As such, very few kids would willingly go up to their bedroom when the time comes. The good new is, there are many guides about how to get stubborn kids into bed, and a quick Google search will lead you straight to them.

But, sometimes, reluctance to go to bed is more than stubborn behavior. If your child develops a fear of the dark, going to sleep could become a major issue for them. And, if this happens, their health and happiness are at risk.

Many parents, when faced with this issue, either turn to night lights or utilize natural light with methods like those mentioned at These options can help your child get to sleep, and thus overcome the largest hurdle. But, these methods cover the issue, rather than curing it. And, if you want an easy night routine anytime soon, a cure is essential. Find one by following these steps.

It may even be worth developing something like a ‘monster spray’ which your child can keep with them. A spray bottle with water in it will do the trick here.

Bunk them with their siblings

If issues persist, it’s time to take more drastic action. It might even be worth moving your children into the same room so they can offer each other comfort. Though there’s now a focus on each child having a separate room, this is a new concept, which many are already questioning. As you can find from this article on, there are actually many benefits to kids sharing. And, curing that phobia could very well be one of them.
