At some point in our lives, many of us have experienced a paralyzing fear when surrounded by darkness. For children, it’s a normal part of their development to be afraid of the dark. As little ones start to learn about the world that surrounds them, many things can become scary, especially the fictional creatures, like ghosts or monsters, that may be hiding where no one can see them. However, when it comes to adults, this irrational fear may mean that they are suffering from a phobia called Nyctophobia.
