Helping Kids Fight the Fear of Monsters


One of the hardest parts of parenting is helping children to overcome the fears of monsters in their room. For almost his entire life, my younger son has had a fear of my master bathroom closet, thinking that a ‘grey monster’ lives in the darkness of all our clothes. Over the years, I have tried everything to help him overcome the fear, and nothing has seemed to work.

All of my friends and family had told me that it was something that he would outgrow, but unfortunately, he is almost 11 years old, and will still not go anywhere near our closet because of the fear of that terrifying monster.

When talking with my of my friends about the subject over lunch, she advised me that she had recently learned about The Sweet Dream Box that is helping children to overcome the fear of monsters and have a better nights sleep. The minute that I got home, I purchased the item and couldn’t wait until it arrived.

The day that the package arrived, I sat down with my son and told him what it was. I told him that it was a special kit that would help to make the ‘grey monster’ leave our house forever. My son was a little bit hesitant at first, but once I opened the box, he got super excited about what he saw.

We first opened the book that came with the box that told him how to fight off monsters in his house. He took the dream catcher out of the box and ran up to his room where he hung it over his bed. Then we poured the monster bad dream liquid into the spray bottle, and he went off to fight the monster in our house.

My son was confident that it would work and he did it every night for almost two weeks until he told me that it was done. The ‘grey monster’ had finally left our house. It was very empowering for my son to fight the fear on his own along with the tools provided in The Sweet Dreams Box. Now he has no fears of our closet or any area of our home.

If you have a child who has a fear of monsters or the darkness, I highly recommend The Sweet Dreams Box. It is currently available for purchase online.

The Sweet Dreams Box includes:

Essential oils blend – ( This oil is a blend of 6 oils)

Lavender – Induces sleep and is excellent to help with nervous issues and anxiety .
Wild Orange – Can help to decrease stress and instil peaceful feelings.
Frankincense – Induces a feeling of mental peace, relaxation, lowers anxiety, anger and stress
Cedarwood – Has a great soothing and calming effect on the mind, relieving tension and anxiety
Vetiver – It calms nervous irritations such as anger, anxiety, restlessness and nervousness.

Colouring book – This is just not an ordinary colouring book . It is made with an intention of making the child 100 % involved in the activity. We take them through an inspiring story of a young boy who banishes the monster and bad dreams on his own. The boy in the book can be an inspiration for your child. If he ( character of the book ) can do it so they ( your child) can do it to. This book can be used for night time colouring also.

Dream Catcher – (various colours) to be hung above their bed and it should not be within the reach of the child. This dream catcher will catch all their bad dreams before reaching them. (It’s like a police for their bad dreams) The child will get an assurance that they are protected.

Spray Bottle with the essential oil – The spray is for the child to spray in all the corners of the room where he/she feels the monster will be hiding. ( This spray will have water and the essential oil blend, we will provide you with the oil, you just need to add water.)

Glass bottle with eye dropper – We call it the “super shield’ and a small drop of the content is to be placed on their inner wrist (they rub their wrists together) and also a drop on the back of their neck. Again, this is the same formula as the ‘monster spray’ and is meant to help the child be calm and have a restful sleep.
