4 year old DS has started waking at night crying saying he has had a bad dream. He is also scared going to bed and is quite worried about monsters.
We have had many conversations about monsters just being in people's imaginations and stories, not real, our house is secure, no one/nothing can get in at night etc. This morning he said he kept his eyes open all night last night (he did not he was asleep when I went to bed and he woke with a bad dream later on) so he would not have a bad dream.
I've talked about how in dreams you can have magical powers and chase the monsters away.
Has anyone got any suggestions about anything I can read/do/show him to help him get over this fear?
