I need help moms, My 2 1/2 year old son is all of the sudden afraid of monsters when he goes to his room to go to sleep, I make sure he watches nothing scary, all he watches is Treehouse and Disney, I have not changed his night time routine he has his snack, watches a little tv, brushes his teeth, we read a book, he gets his flashlights and usually he would go on to sleep but the last couple days hes been crying and very scared any suggestions please ???

There's a book that helped my son when he was that age and going through the same thing, it's called "No More Monsters" by Martin Meador. I'll post a link on Amazon below so you can see what it looks like or order it if you're interested. It's really cute and basically is about teaching them that monsters are "only in my head." Maybe also getting a night light might help. We also with my son would turn the lights off when we were there, then show him all the things in his room were the same in the dark as they were in the light. All these things worked well for us. Good luck!
