Nightmares and Night Terrors

 

Nightmares:

    • These are scary or vivid dreams that cause your child to awaken suddenly.
    • Occur mostly around ages 3 to 5, but can occur in older children.
    • Usually occur very early in the morning (4:00 to 6:00 a.m.), when your child is sleeping relatively lightly. However, they can occur at other times.
    • Your child will probably recall the dream very clearly. The dream may involve something disturbing experienced that day. Your child may have the same dream repeatedly.
    • Because nightmares are so scary, it may be difficult for your child to settle down and go back to sleep.

How to manage: Awaken and comfort your child; talk to him to ease any stress that may be bothering him; avoid watching TV before bedtime.

Night terrors:

    • Your child suddenly screams and sits up in bed. He or she may seem very agitated—sweating, heart racing, pupils wide.
    • These episodes are most common in preschool and older children.
    • Even though his or her eyes are open, your child may actually still be asleep. It may be several minutes before he or she finally wakes up.
    • When your child does awaken, he or she doesn’t remember any bad dream. As a result, getting back to sleep after night terrors may not be difficult.

How to manage: Treatment with medications not effective; try putting child to bed a little earlier to avoid tiredness. Most children outgrow having night terrors.
