How to Help Kids Overcome Fear of the Dark

A hypnotic story to make the dark of night a friendly place for children

Kids Fear of Darkness

Is fear of the dark keeping your child awake and anxious at night?

Has bedtime become a time of worry and stress rather than a wind down for a good night's sleep?

Fear of the dark isn't just a problem for (some) kids, it can trouble adults too. But it's slightly different for adults because they know rationally, that their darkened bedroom is perfectly safe and there is nothing there.

But this knowledge isn't enough to stop a child's fear of darkness. So, for children, the challenge is to overcome the gap between what they know and what they feel. (There is a specific download for adults to overcome fear of the dark).

Fear of darkness grows out of a child's imaginings

For the young child, the world of mind and imagination is completely mixed up with the outer world, with no clear boundary between the two.

It takes quite a long time for a child to learn to tell the difference between their thoughts and imaginings and external phenomena. They have no easy way to distinguish between the bear in the corner of the bedroom and the bear in the zoo.

So telling a child that there is no bear in the corner of the bedroom is no help at all. The child can clearly see it in their mind's eye, all big and growly, and the fact that you can't see it is no help to them either. They have no trouble imagining a bear that appears to them but makes itself invisible to you.

The easiest way to help a child deal with imaginary monsters is to join them in their mingled world and overcome those monsters with the help of the imagination that created them.

And the easiest way to do that is with a really good story.

A hypnotic story to help kids learn that the dark is a fine place to be

Kids - Fear of the Dark is an audio session created especially for young children by experienced psychologists and story tellers. It tells of a child who wants something very very badly, and the only thing standing in the way of having it is her own fear. As the story unfolds, the heroine learns a wonderful way to master her fears - and so does the listener.
