You might need to get a clip-on lamp for your kid, too. This would be great for those nights when you need to read them a bedtime story. Clip-ons can be moved anywhere you need them. So they're very helpful when your child who's going to school needs extra light on his desk to do his or her homework or art project.
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.
Night lights for kids are thought to be an absolute necessity rather than a luxury. Even if your little one isn't frightened of the dark, you need them to be able to see clearly should they wake up during the night time. This will make sure that your kid does not come to harm whenever they have to make use of the restroom or suffer from a nightmare. They're also practical for children in shared bedrooms so that older children can easily move about in their own room after younger kids go to bed without fear of disturbing them.
Kids night lights are great to put throughout your house for anyone that has to get up for any reason in the middle of the night. They can be put in hallways and near steps to prevent trips and falls. They can light up any area where you may have to go at night and eliminates the need to turn on overhead lights or to have a flashlight. You can find ones that will turn off when they sense daylight, saving you not only energy, but also the need to bend over to turn them on and off each morning and night.
Though not all children have an intense fear of the dark, there are very few that sleep in a completely dark room without complain. Imagination is something that is very vivid in a child, and that imagination leads them to believe all types of things, including the thought that there may just be a three headed monster under their bed, or that the sound they hear outside is not the wind, but rather a howling wolf looking to come get them. Kids night lights are common in all family homes, and some people have to have more than one per room. They have other great uses too.
