Monster in my Closet...

So, we've hit that stage. Nightmares. It used to be bugs, but has morphed into monsters. While I have theories as to why it morphed - we won't go into it here. The reason for this post is I'm looking for some advice that will help quell (or is it qwell?) the monsters in my closet routine. I would really prefer he dreams about 'xhaust pipes and Jesus. (Hi Brendan!) I don't know what to do. I've done some reading - but those suggestions don't seem to help any. Any real life experience in how to slay a [fictional] dragon? PLEEZ help. I'm begging.

I have a friend whose little girl has nightmares about monsters. They filled up a spray bottle with "magic monster killer" and sprayed it all over her room. not sure if it worked or not, but it's worth a try. He might be too smart for that, but you never know. Let HIM spray it and he may think the whole thing is fun. Then he can keep it by his bed in case he needs it later.

When I was a kid, I was terrified that Frankenstein was living in my closet. So, every night, my mom sprayed "Monster Spray" into the closet (it was just cinnamon-scented air freshener with a dolled up label). She even let me sleep with the can by my bed so I could spray it if I got scared. I dunno if that'll help you, but it sure helped me!

Put a taplight in his closet that you turn on every night. Tell him monsters are afraid of lights, that's why they hide in closets.
