Are Your Kids’ Monsters Scary or Nice?


Parenting Thoughts

Monsters are not real, so your children can make them be any way they want them to be. Here are some things that can help them outsmart or out-imagine their fears.
With the help of a little imagination, a big hairy monster can become teeny tiny, toothless, all furry and cuddly, so sleepy he can’t wake up no matter how hard he tries, or a monster without legs that weebles-wobbles on a round behind. Especially when monsters are part of a scary dream at night, a child can learn to turn the dream into a fun, safe, comforting dream instead. Children can use their imaginations to make the monsters be anything they can think of that would be the opposite of scary.
