“I tell my son there are NO monsters under the bed” – but he doesn’t believe me
When it comes to bedtime, children can come up with incredibly imaginative ways to keep you by their side. And monsters hiding under the bed is one of them.
And as obvious as it may be to you as the parent that there are no monsters under the bed, and you can prove this to them, they still don't believe you.
So obviously reason and logic is not the solution to this kind of problem.
Ask yourself the following question. "Would you rather spend your time on trying to prove that these things don’t exist, or do you want to spend your time on making sure you can prevent this ongoing pattern from happening again?
This lesson is all about you finding how this problem can be solved, instead of trying to convince your child there is nothing there in the first place.
