Every now and then I meet a child who has trouble with night-time monsters. Maybe you as a child had one (or a few!) under the bed, in the wardrobe, behind the curtains?
As adults you and I might call these guys imaginary, but for a child, they are real.
I wrote this piece for parenting website Voiceboks.com and in it I describe a technique that I use, and that you as a parent can use at home with your child’s monsters.
