Very troublesome, I'm sure. I wouldn't expect this sort of problem to arise at this age for no reason at all, and the first step would be to calmly and gently chat to her about her fears and recent experiences. Were there any sleep problems while she was on vacation ? Did anything happen while on vacation that may have frightened her, in the night ot even at some other time ? Could she have viewed something on television / DVD that she found frightening ?
Wjay does she imagine could be frightening in her room ? It might help for her to have a night-light in her room, so she can see everything is fine when she wakes up, rather than perhaps being frightened by ambiguous shadows.
