get a nightlight and sometimes maybe let them stay with you!

Add Night lights and dream catchers to room. Also "Guardian Angel" picture or poster is helpful for some children. Reassure them and talk in a soothing manner when they are scared or can't sleep. Make sure they have a regular bed time routine. Give them time to get ready for bed with story or activity such as coloring that is calming and allows them to unwind. Ask how their day went and allow them time to talk about activities. Leave closet doors open. Make the rest of the house calm and quiet.

She is not too happy with the idea of waking up surrounded by bones and decaying corpses. She is afraid it will make her crazy.
