Dealing with Night Terrors in Children

They are called night terrors.  Night terrors are where a child will actually wake up screaming, not even knowing that they are screaming. What happens is that they’re dreaming and they’re in a state of sleep where they actually are not responsive. The more you try to wake your child or get your child out of a night terror, the worse it gets. What you need to do in these situations is to protect your child so they don’t harm themselves, but otherwise, let them get through it. It could take twenty to thirty minutes for a night terror to end.

We always appreciate your comments.
