Well we do monster squashing at our house. We make a game out of it, and it helps her be in control. She finds the monsters- yells that she sees one, we tell her to go step on him. And he is gone. That happens a bit more until she tells us there arent anymore.
I would play this game during the daytime too, dont make it just a bedtime thing, so she isnt always associating monsters with bedtime and her room.
The monster spray worked for us. I made up a cute recipe for it, we had to use water, glitter and their favorite color food coloring. Then she had to spin around 3 times kiss it and yell "no more monsters"/
We occasionally have monsters or other things that are a reason for Cooper to stall on going to bed. He has a portable nightlight and we tell him the monsters go away when he turns it on so we give it to him and leave the light with him so he can control it.
I convinced Eric that monsters are afraid of the dark, LOL. I would leave on the hall light and turn off the light in his room, and he told me that the monsters would sleep in the hall where it was light and leave him alone.
