  • I am 33 years old and I have a night light!!! LOL My husband and I do not sleep in the same room because of his snoring. He really could wake the dead, and I am a really light sleeper. But I don't like to sleep in a completely dark room so yes I have a night light. My 5 year old has 1 too.

  • I can remember, when I was a child around the age of 8 I use to be afraid of the dark.
    I believe its a passing thing so no big deal to have a night light on. bboop

  • None of my kids have them. We tried them on occasion but they didn't help the kids any and just gave them an excuse to stay up later goofing off, reading, playing with toys, etc.
    We live in the city so they usually get enough light coming in from their windows to be able to navigate through the room at night if they need to use the bathroom. Otherwise they sleep with the lights off and doors closed. The darker the better. They are 9, 7 1/2, 6 1/2 (all in one room) and 3 (in her own room).
    I need my room to be pitch black to really sleep well.

  • my five year old has one.. she says she wants it so she can see if she needs to get up and go to the bathroom. i dont think there is anything wrong with it.
