HOW TO CONQUER CHILDHOOD FEARS by Nancy Zazzaro Fears are very common in children between the ages of three and eight. They can be triggered by anything from hearing a scary story, seeing scary images, or the fact that children are becoming aware of death and their vulnerability.
Children tend to feel small and often powerless. The world can seem big, frightening, and confusing. Vivid imaginations contribute to their fears. The symbol for the things children find scary and feel might harm them, manifests itself in the form of “monsters.”
The best way to solve childhood fears is to give children the feeling of control and power over what is frightening to them. An excellent way to overcome these fears is to tell the child a story about a protective monster that watches over them. In addition, a picture of a friendly monster is superb in helping them frighten away the “bad” monsters. Aromatherapy sprays with essential oils, such as lavender, create an actual soothing effect. Give them “bravery in a bottle”. Empowering children is key to overcoming their fears. With creativity, love, and support children can conquer their fears.
Keep the bogeyman at bay and storms away with Monster Vapor & Storm Squasher! Helping to alleviate nighttime fears and defeat those imaginary monsters can be tricky, as many parents know. Why not put the feeling of control back in your child’s hands by arming him or her with the Monster Vapor or Storm Squasher?
Touted as “bravery in a bottle,” both the Monster Vapor and Storm Squasher are made with Organic Lavender essential oil to calm and soothe during times of stress, such as battling the monsters lurking under the bed or when the thunder crashes extremely loud! Each bottle comes adorably packaged with a special bed time story to be read with extra snuggles by mom or dad. The sprays also make delightful room or fabric re-fresheners!
