Comfort toys can be a subtle way to acknowledge and help comfort anxious children. A soft toy that they can cuddle and keep with them can sometimes help. Talk to the child about the toy and let them choose a special name for it.
Nightlights also help distract the child and stop them imagining monsters in the dark. Try something that glows or has regular movement.
