Dd 2.5 has decided she is scared of the dark as there are monsters in her room. She usually sleeps with the door just to and the hallway light on so her room isn't super dark anyway, but now it has to be all the way open as she says there are monsters at the window. She has a blind which is all the way down, and we are going to get her some curtains she picks tomorrow and a night light, and some 'monster spray' but any other suggestions? Any night lights people recommend or ideas that have helped in your household?

IKEA owl light is great. It's become like a friend to Ds.

shadows can do weird things, so perhaps show her how she can make shadow shapes and how they can look like things that aren't really there.

Put a trusted teddy on guard.

Funnily enough we was doing bunnies on her wall at bedtime so that might have sunk in a little bit, she has always been the best sleeper so this is a shock to the system!

I told mine that the thing is, it would have to get through me first and we both know that won't happen so monsters don't even bother in this house. It worked because they are little and in their eyes I quite probably actually do rule the world.

There are lots of books for kids about monsters, good, happy books which put another slant on the thought of them. We have "Mess Monsters" who are just cheeky and mess up the room while the boy sleeps but I have seen others which tackle this problem, check out Amazon,

And you could watch Monster Inc together too.
