Kids with 'fears' will talk as long as parents listen

A true story: When my daughter, Amy, was a preteen, she became anxious about going to sleep because of fears of dying in the middle of the night. When I tucked her in (I was her preferred tucker-inner), she would tell me, usually tearfully, that she didn't want to go to sleep for fear of never waking up.
