My toddler has recently started voicing a fear that monsters are coming to either get her or eat her. This happens at night and last night after looking worriedly out the window when she told me the monster was coming she asked me to cuddle her, which I promptly did. I am just not sure what to do to help ease her fear that there are monsters and that they want to get her, I’m not even sure where this came from.
She has watched Monsters, Inc a few times and loves the movie so I don’t think that is the problem, she understands that those monsters are nice and even likes them, she carries a Boo picture around with her sometimes. Any tips on how to show her that either monsters aren’t real or that they aren’t going to help her would be much appreciated, I feel terrible she is so scared.
