I don't know if anyone else is having this problem. My son was waking up multiple times at night and wouldn't tell me why for nights. He wanted to sleep with me in my bed. When I would put him to bed he would tell me he didn't like his bed. Then he finally told me, monsters! So I asked everyone about what to do. They all told me different things, which didn't work for us. Finally I went and bought him a toy gun. I told him a I bought him a special monster gun. I made sure to give it to him about an hour before bedtime. I told him everytime he sees a monster that he should shoot it with this gun. He shoot all of the monsters in the house before he went to bed. He even wanted me to shut the lights off in his room so he could shoot the monsters in the dark. So far this has worked for him.
