Scared of the dark: to light or not to light?

If we want our children to become comfortable in the dark, then maybe we need to rethink how we use the light.

When our children call out that they are scared of the dark, do we instantly respond by putting on more light? Some parents start out the night with a night light, hall light, others wait and turn on lights later. But what if we strategically chose to help our children learn to find their peace with God in the dark, instead of in an external light?
