I’ve had two nightmares in two nights. Not so fun. But it made me think about what things parents can do to help their kids not be so afraid of the dark. (Not that I’m afraid of the dark…much)

Step one: a nightlight
Step two: a story
Step three: make something that’s scary into play

Perfect example of all three…a shadow puppet show!

Cue the Owly Shadow Puppets! Adorable, even the dinosaurs – which scare the be-jesus out of me.
