Any parents out there with children aged 8 that are scared of the dark and problems with bedtime?

My daughter is nearly eight next month and she is scared of the dark and i have huge problems getting her off to bed of a night time, sometimes it could be by the time she is properly asleep of a school night and it affects her getting up of a morning and school work also any ideas.

I used those glow sticks for my daughter at night. I bought the bracelet ones and gave her one each night. She would fall asleep holding the bracelet in her hands. She also had a night light in her room.

my daughter has like 3 night lights lol, she is 7 and is scared of the dark. We also have these music channels with our cable that only play music and have a pic on the tv (a boring pic at that) so it gives her extra light and some soothing music to play while she falls asleep. You could also try using a clock radio or a cd player to play classical music.
