do daddy and son rough house before bedtime maybe dad needs to have down time just before bed with son talk,laugh, listen to his day. As for the monsters I believe kids turn things they don't understand into monsters so b/c your son doesn't have the dreams all the time maybe keeping track of his activity and logging when he had the monster dreams will help.

Maybe some cartoon that he is watching before bedtime makes him scared in a strange way!
