Some children have just one kids night light in their room and that is all that they need. As long as they can still see the features of the room when they wake up at night so they know where they are, they are fine. However, some children have to have quite a few. A night light will actually make normal things look strange to them, which can makes the problem worse. These children benefit from having a few lights as well as a flashlight that they can turn on whenever they feel the need to investigate something. This often helps them feel a sense of power over their fears and helps them sleep better.
A ceiling light fixture is an ideal alternative as you never have to worry about lamps being knocked over. For the rooms of younger kids consider general ambient lighting that comes from a ceiling light fixture. Over time you can add localized task lighting into the mix as your child begins using her room for more refined activities like reading or arts and crafts.
A dimmer switch is another good feature to have in a kid room. Such a switch allows you to brighten the room when required and then lower the light at bedtime. The safest kinds of ambient light fixtures to use in your child's room are wall scones, recessed fixtures and track lighting. The advantage here is that these types of fixtures won't get damaged if your kids start rough housing whereas another type of child lamp may. Also keeping any light sources out of your child's reach is always a good way to prevent burns.
