My son doesn’t like monsters. Apparently they come out of his closet, play with/break/lose his toys, mess up his room and sleep in his bed. Normally, I wouldn’t worry too much about this monster activity, but it’s starting to get ridiculous.
He refuses to sleep in his bed, instead he sleeps on the floor on top of his animal pillows, he refuses to sleep alone, so a couple of times a night (when he realizes he’s alone) someone has to put him back to bed. We had a bit of luck by getting him a new bed that he was excited about, got 3 days of bed sleeping out of it before he demanded to be back on the floor.
In terms of Monster Management, we’ve held a strict policy of “there are no monsters” while being flexible about his monster related needs.
Good people of the Straight Dope, what would you recommend?
