This : This sounds a lot like night terrors. Night terrors or sleep terrors are most commonly found in kids between the ages of 4 years to 12 years old. They can involve: -sitting up in bed -screaming -thrashing about or flailing -being difficult to wake up -inconsolable -sleep walking -a wide-eyed stare -sweating, heavy breathing, and fast heartbeat unlike a nightmare, the children typically have no memory of the episode. The good news is that most kids grow out of it by the time they hit adolescence. Here are a few tips to help her (and you!) cope with the current situation: -if she's sleepwalking or getting up, make the environment safe (close doors, hide electrical cords, lock windows, etc. -try to have her get more sleep since fatigue can make sleep terrors worse -establish a regular, quiet, calming routine before bed -see if anything is stressing your child out and talk about it - stress and anxiety can make sleep terrors worse -look for a pattern - if she's getting up at the same time every night, try waking her up 15 minutes before the episode to break the pattern if the terrors are worsening, becoming more frequent, are effecting her and your ability to function during the day, or if you think she could be a danger to herself, contact her doctor. ...Read more
