Fear of the dark and fear of monsters is common among children. These are the years when a child’s imagination is exploding. Just think about it, children spend a good portion of their day immersed in fantasy play. It can be hard to shut this off at bedtime and go to sleep. Even familiar things that have never been scary before like a darkened bedroom, may suddenly seem frightening. Don’t worry, help is on it’s way. The Adventures of Scuba Jack has created a lovely story that explains the noises, sounds and bumps in the night are explainable, enabling a peaceful, restful sleep.
