Gergana to a year and a half sleep alone in his room, without having put night lamp lights. But one night was startled by a dream and now sleep in a room and sleeps with a night light. But sleep blow out. Children develop a fear of the dark much later – sometime after year. At first they do not care the dark. But as they grow suddenly notice it and became scary.
