what not to do *donít wake them. if children cry out but are still asleep when parents go to their room, it's not necessary to wake them. unless children are extremely upset, it is possible that the nightmare will end and they will return to normal sleep. parents should just stay with their children until they either wake up or sleep peacefully again. *donít let children sleep with you. it is not a good idea for parents to get into their children's beds or to allow their children into their bed after a nightmare. this might give children the message that they should be afraid of their own beds. this may also turn into a habit that is very difficult to break. *donít tell children nightmares arenít real. it will probably not help to tell children that their nightmares were not real, or that it was "just a dream." to children, the nightmare seemed very real, and was very frightening. instead, parents should try to explain to their children what a dream is and that all people have them. nightmares are a normal part of almost all children's lives. the best thing that parents can do to help their children cope with nightmares is to find a way to calm and support them if they're upset by one. however, if parents have any concerns about their children's nightmares, especially if children are having other problems, it is best to consult their children's health care provider.

what if the child is moaning and screaming and the only way to get them to stop is to wake them? when he is woken he still has to be sat up and the lights turned on to get fully awake, otherwise the nightmare or night terror continues. during these he will grind his teeth as well. help!

nightmares and night terrors are two different thing. a child will wake from a bad dream and recall the dream. a child suffering from night terrors will open eyes, walk around, scream or other seemingly awake activities - but is actually still in a deep sleep. the child will not recall the incident when they wake. night terror is a sleeping disorder that can be treated by a pediatrician in extreme cases. usually it occurs in children 3-8 years old and disappears before the child is 9. aside from not remembering the terror, children with night terrors have a lot of trouble waking up in the morning, despite a seemingly full night's sleep. never wake a child having night terrors. comforth them and ease them back to sleep. if it's interfering with your child's health, see your pediatrician or a sleep disorder center at a hospital.

monitor child's food. when children overeat, they can get indigestion and have bad dreams.
