3 ways to overcome the fear of darkness in a child, preschoolers

For about a month, the regional power employees have been torturing us with planned blackouts. Fortunately, the stove is gas and life without light does not prevent our family from eating normally.

On the one hand, it is even useful to spend several hours a day without light. Immediately there is no need to read the news on the Internet, watch the show on TV or do the cleaning. There is an opportunity to lie down, chat, rest.

Here are just my little daughter of a completely different opinion about this event. She is afraid of the dark. And since the light is turned off in the evening, these few hours turn into torture for her.

Candles placed around the perimeter of the room, do not save the situation. All the time, until there is no light, baby whimpers. You can distract it, but only for a short while. For this, both my husband and I have to keep my daughter on handles all the time, sing songs and hold other entertainment events.

We began to deal with this problem as soon as it was discovered. Now we can boast the first success. If earlier the daughter began to whimper, as soon as darkness fell, now she plays for some time with toys in the light of candles, tells about something. And only after half an hour-hour begins to ask for pens and sobbing plaintively.

I want to tell you today, dear girls, what methods help your daughter to overcome the fear of darkness!

Finding out the causes of fear

For this, I asked my daughter why she was afraid of the dark. As it turned out, there are more than enough reasons for fear. The baby remembered both the terrible Baba Yaga in a magical stupa, and the babayka, often recalled by our grandmother. In addition, the daughter in the dark is afraid of sounds. She often heard squeaks and rustles.

After this, a serious conversation was held with grandmother about Babayka. And I told my daughter for a long time that Baba Yaga lives only in fairy tales.

Fill the room with pleasant sounds

With the squeaks and rustles had to somehow fight. By the way, the reason for these sounds was known to me – they were published by our prankster-cat. But I could not explain this to my daughter.


I downloaded children’s songs into the phone and now, while we have to sit without light, my daughter enjoys pleasant music. Rustle no longer bother her!

We filter the information that the child receives

After the monsters dreamed in the dark a couple of times, I forbade her to watch TV. Before that, even though she watched a channel for children, there were different cartoons there: good and not so good. Now the daughter is watching only those cartoons that have passed my selection.

I am sure that there will be no more blackouts for a couple of weeks, and my daughter will not be afraid of the dark at all 🙂 If only this educational process would be over!

Are your children afraid of the dark? How are you fighting this?
