Lisa - Anxiety about creepy critters?....hmm, that hits really close to home.
Keri - It's a normal fear to have. Maybe give her a night light (spiders tend to come out in the dark, after all), let her vacuum her room before she goes to bed (that will get boring quick), and just reassure her that we all go to sleep and wake up every day without horrible spider accidents occurring during the night.
Cortney - "monster spray" or in your case "spider spray" We took a squirt bottle and filled it up with water and put a cute little "monster spray" sticker on it. Any time she was scared there was a monster, she would spray it. I am happy to say that our house is now monster free!! (this will help with the anxiety attacks)
I am dealing with the same problem, and have been looking for organic ways to get rid of spiders (with a little one and being pregnant we don't want to spray). I read that lemon scented Pledge works miracles. Put it in the entryways of your house and since spiders taste through their legs, they will soon disappear from your house because they hate it so much. Good luck! (but this will help the real problem)
Thank you Amy!!
