My son was usually a good sleeper until the past 3 months. Progressively he started asking if 'bears will come in his room at night'? Assuming maybe the 3 Bears was misinterrupted we spend lots of time looking a pictures of where bears live and explaining that they are afraid of us also. It helped for a bit but then we moved. Now that we are in our new home it started full force. I am not sure if he is using this as a way to express he is just scared of the dark but he runs in my room every night at 12 and 4 am screaming for me to sleep on the couch so bears can't come in. We made colorful signs together which are comically posted on every door in the house for BEARS TO STAY OUT but to no avail.
Unfortunately, we also have a new fear of any bug to accompany this. It makes simple play times exhausting as he doesn't want to go any where unless it is checked for ants, bugs and god forbid a fly go by. He screams with such fear it breaks my heart.
Has anyone experienced this? Do you have any suggestions which helped your family?
