Monster Madness


My daughter is 2.5 year old and randomly started telling us there are monsters (under bed, under couch, etc.). She doesn’t necessarily act afraid of them but she does seem bothered by them. It’s not at bed time or in an attempt to get to sleep with me or do anything specific. She just keeps acknowledging that she thinks there’s a monster there. How can I handle her concern about the monsters without causing her to become fully afraid of them (she currently doesn’t show fear about anything). She’s not afraid of the dark or any loud noises, people, bugs, snakes, etc. I don’t want to cause her to start being afraid so how can I get her to understand there’s nothing to worry about?
