Quick Answers...

 

My 5-year-old son still likes to sleep with a night light on and his bedroom door open. Is that okay?
 

A night light helps many children feel relaxed and secure as they fall asleep, especially if they are afraid of the dark. Some children also prefer their bedroom doors to be left open. Both of these things may help children who need to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.
