Post subject: Does any know .....
Anything about night terrors? My 6yr old son used to get them now and again but he's had them 4 nights this week. It's really starting to upset me as I can't leave him screaming and he's even walking around now. I heard him downstairs at 2 in the morning 1 night and he hates the dark, he was just stood in the living room. I just don't know what to do, my lo is getting woke up aswell. Does any of your kids have them or used to have them? xxxx

my lil girl gets them from time to time and i was told by doc once they have gone down to sleep go in after a hour and stir them from their slepp a bit. . . not fully wake them just stir them as apparently this is when they are in the deepest sleep?
hope it helps

My son got them too around that age..but he mainly just slept walked thru out the house. I found out if he was stressed about something at school or in general he would be more prone to getting them and they would occur more frequently. He did grow out of it. We were told to guide him gently back to bed without waking him fully as it would startle them and could hurt himself or us. If he is screaming in his sleep..just gently wake him with a soft voice or put your arms on him and tell him - "mommy/daddy is here and everything is alright." It is really scary when you see them do it. Hope that helps hun. xxx
