  • That's so sad! My daughter did that with monsters (she's 2 also), I always tell her that mommy and daddy would never let any monsters come near her in our house, we let her know that we will protect her and not to be scared. I'm sure you have tried this but I wish you luck! I'm not doubting you but you may want to be sure he is really scared he may just like to sleep with you, I know mine tries that but she does somersaults in her sleep so that can't happen.
