Swiper, witches and crocagators, oh my!

My 3 year old daughter is having bad dreams just like I used to. I worry about it but we filter her television viewing to preschool shows and try to turn off the tv a lot. I know we read stories with bad people and I guess it’s just going to happen. I am trying to talk about it more with her so it won’t seem as scary. Here is a good article about nightmares and preschoolers on babycenter, my bible.
