    Im only scared after a horror movie. My sisters (16,28) are still both afraid of the dark. Not sure why but Im glad I only go through phases of it.

    DD1 is 4 and appears to be scared of the dar, won't sleep unless her lamp is on. I'm hoping to wean her onto a night light instead of her lamp. She won't come out of her room unless its daytime (the hallway gets no light so is very dark).

    I hate sleeping in the dark at the age of 26. Coop has always liked some sort of light so we always have toilet light on. Its not too bright but just bright enough for us to use at night

    Around 2ish dd got scared of the dark and I realized it was from watching monsters inc (ooops) she just loved the movie though I havn't let her watch it since lol. She is 5 next month and still scared of the dark. I'm 26 and sometimes scared of the dark especially after scary movies or scary threads :-/ I leave the hallway light on for her.

    I don't see the harm if it helps them get to sleep. Maybe get a cute night light for them and a special cuddle teddy and you can say the teddy is a safe protective teddy?

    Sorry to hear your having scary stuff happen it could be contributing to there scares. They could have overheard you both talking or just cotton on to you not sleeping in your room when DH isn't around. But they are at an age where it can happen anyway. I beleive that dd was just going to develop a fear of the dark one way or another. Monsters inc just brought it forward. As I don't think all kids would be scared of that movie she is just sensitive to it.

    My almost 4 year old is afraid of the dark. I bought a night light but even that isn't enough so i leave the hallway light on while she goes to sleep (just outside her room).
    My 2 year old isn't bothered by the dark.

    Thanks for the replies ladies.
    So I asked this morning and they told me they get "scared dark in room" so I asked why and they said "monster in dark room"

    So hoping they've just seen something on tv!
    I think I'll just buy a nightlight and see how they go.
