Are Your Kids Afraid of Monsters? Calm Their Fears with Bye Bye Monster Products (Giveaway)
Posted Feb 08 2010 9:07am
Every nightmy six-year-old twins have a ritual where they squirt “monster spray” around their room to keep away scary things. This really works well in calming their fear that something is lurking in the dark. This fabulous monster spray comes from a company called the Bye Bye Shopwhich specializes in organic products to help kids.
Bye Bye Monster Organic Monster Repellent is made with all-natural aromatherapy ingredients like lavenderchamomile and sweet orange. Besides scaring away monstersit has the added benefit of helping kids to relax. It smells wonderfuland when my kids smell their monster spraythey know that it is “working”! It’s a simplebut ingenious way to give children the power to control their fears. If your kids suffer from nighttime fearsthey are not alone. Seventy-three percent of children ages 4-12 experience a fear of monsters or other things that keep them up at night.
In addition to the monster repellentthe Bye Bye Shop offers a fabulous children’s book called Bye Bye Monster: Joey’s Adventure on Monster Streetby Kelly Lucente. (Adorable illustrations were provided by Disney illustratorTim Brazier.) The story introduces a little boy named Joey who is afraid to go to bed at night because he fears that monsters lurk in his room. His mother introduces him to monster sprayso Joey thinks good thoughts and sprays the monster repellent in his closet. When he sprays it in his dresser drawera monster appears! But this monster is cute and cuddlyand tells Joey that his name is Barley. He informs Joey that not all monsters are scaryand he takes Joey on an imaginary journey to Monster Street. ThereJoey learns that monsters come in all shapes and sizesand that very few of them are mean. (He bravely handles one mean monster with a squirt of his monster spray!) Joey enjoys great adventures on Monster Street before returningsafe and soundto his bed and sleep.
Barley is also available in the Bye Bye Shop as a stuffed animal that kids can sleep with and befriendcalming their fears about monsters. I love the Bye Bye Monster products. We received both the book and the monster repellentand they have been very effective in getting my kids not to fear monsters.
The Bye Bye Shop also has other terrific organic sprays for kids. The Bye Bye Germs Organic Anti-Viral Spraywith eucalyptuslavenderlemon and tea tree oilis a much better alternative to standard hand sanitizerswhich contain a high percentage of toxic alcohol. My kids love to use Bye Bye Germsand I feel good about them having this product when hand-washing isn’t convenient. I’d also like to try the Bye Bye Bugs Organic Insect Repellentwith red thymelemon grasslavender and peppermint. It helps to keep the bugs away from your precious kids without the use of harmful chemicals. DISCOUNT – RECEIVE 15% OFF YOUR ORDER!
