My 3yo daughter is suddenly afraid at bedtime - with no identifiable event that set it off. She says she's afraid of crocodiles. I've explained to her that it's too cold here for crocodiles, and that their legs are too short for them to climb the stairs, but she still wants me to leave the door open when she goes to bed. The problem here is that we have a split level house and the noise from cleaning up the kitchen carries upstairs and keeps her awake. She was fine at night for such a long time, I just don't know what to do to help calm her fears.
