As parents, we seek to protect our children from dangers in the world around them, but sometimes we aren't sure how to offer them peace of mind from unseen things like monsters in the closet or frightening dreams.
Brooke, a mother of three, found a solution to her child's nightmare problem through the creation of "Bad Dreams Go Away Spray" and Activity Kit.
Each parent/child activity kit includes:
- Full color children's story booklet
- Bad Dreams Go Away spray bottle and recipes to create your own custom spray.
- Cute little "Make your own Monster" stickers
The story booklet features bright colors and cute illustrations. It would be a great part of a nighttime routine children suffering from bad dreams or fear of hidden monsters.
The back of the booklet lists the "Secret Recipe Ingredients" to create a spray personalized for your own child.
The recipe calls for food coloring to add color to the spray. Be very cautious before spraying on light colored linens due to the risk of staining. If you are concerned about this you can either omit the food coloring and have a clear scented spray, or you can make sure to dilute the spray so that the color is not so intense. This shouldn't be a problem at all if you simply spray it in the air.
The kit does not come with the food coloring or food flavoring, but most of us moms have loads of miscellaneous food coloring left over from Easter eggs or various baking/crafting projects. You can always use what you have on hand.
Here's some information on Brooke, the author and creator of "Bad Dreams Go Away Spray."
Author and illustrator, Brooke Erwin, is a proud mom of three brilliant and very funny children. Two of her three children have a condition called Charcot-Marie-Tooth, which is the most common form of hereditary neuropothy and is a condition found in the Muscular Dystrophy family. She and her husband run a successful home automation company in the Atlanta area. She has spent most of the last 15 years at home raising her babies. She has also worked as a child care director and coordinator for GA Pre-K, which gave her even more memorable experiences with young children.
During the infant, toddler and pre-school phases of parenthood, she learned she was going to have to be more inventive and devise some new, more child friendly ways to get things done around her home. Thus, Bad Dreams Go Away Spray was born. She is also a part-time student working toward her legal mediation degree. She has always loved to doodle and draw and enjoys anything fun and creative like gardening, scrapbooking and card making when she is not spending time with her family. Currently, Brooke is working on her second Children's Book which is due out sometime next fall. All of her story ideas have come from her experiences in the classroom, rearing her own children or from stories friends have shared along the way.
Although my little one is still to small to use this spray, I think this is a great idea. I plan on holding onto it for the future. There are plans to release a hardcover version of the book in the near future! I'm glad someone put together a kit to help kids and their parents deal with their nighttime anxiety. To an adult, it may just seem like a spray bottle, but to a little child, it may give them the confidence to face their fears and sleep in peace.
