Are night lights really good for our kids or should we be encouraging them to sleep in the dark? Research shows that the question is not quite that simple. In fact, it’s all depends on the amount and quality of sleep your kids are getting.
It’s not unusual for young children to sleep with a night light, and there are certainly advantages for both parents and children. For parents, it means that you can peek into their room and see how they are doing without waking them by turning on a harsh light. For kids, it’s often about security. Dark shadows can terrify some little ones.
