Two weeks ago, apparently a bear of some size decided to take an interest in our Son's bedroom. He appears some time in the middle of the night, and our son is pretty terrified of going to bed as a result. On night 3, of Beargate 2011, we contacted the pediatrician who talked us through getting him back in bed.
Well, he'll sleep now, but we have two nightlights and a dog sleeping in his room (ironically named Nanuk, which is Inuit for polar bear) in order to get him to sleep at night. We have used a can of dust-off to spray his room for bears. We have made a large sign over his bead that says "No Bears Allowed In This Room." As of yet though, we haven't been able to eliminate the bear.
What creative methods could we employ to help our son eliminate the eminent threat of this bear attack, and provide him proof that the bear is gone? Note: Ideally your suggested method should also not inadvertently hurt dinosaurs.
At your disposal are an assortment of toys, two dogs, two parents, and a resourceful toddler.
