  • Don’t try to argue with your loved one if they are saying they see something at night.

  • Accept that these are real fears.

  • Perhaps when they go to bed, make a show of locking up the windows and door.

  • Try a night light.

  • Help them get tucked in and let them know that the house is all locked down and in ship shape, etc.

  • If they do cry out at night, continue to provide reassurance. This period of fearfulness may pass after some time.
