    Question RQOTD - Monday

    Has your LO('s) ever had trouble going to sleep because of a fear of something (monsters, sharks, mice, etc)? If so, what would they do come bedtime? What were they afraid of? How did you get them to sleep? How long did this stage last?

    Alison doesn't have trouble going to sleep...but she does have night terrors sometimes. Not sure what sets them off but at least once a week she will scream in her sleep and wake up hysterical.

    This is a new phenomenon here. Alicia has recently started asking me to check under the bed for monsters and she will tell me she sees ghosts. So far, I've gotten away with monster inspections and ghost spray (water). It started about a month ago...I'll let you know when it ends

    Sorry to hear that Allison is having night terrors. Jake has had these since he was 16 months old. The primary factor that triggers them for him is being overtired (no nap, going to be late, etc). They can be pretty heartwrenching to experience.

    Both of my boys prefer a parent with them as they fall asleep. If DH or I leave J in his room, once in awhile he will say he is afraid of a monster; but honestly, he is an expert at knowing what to say to delay whatever it is that he wants to avoid. He has never truly been afraid of monsters, but I will not invalidate his fear...only provide comfort and will rub his back for a few minutes before he tells me he is ok.

    Nope. :knocks on wood: Graham got both kids in a habit of falling asleep with a light on. But he installed timer switches so we can program them to turn off on their own.
