In brief: Child will grow out

Unfortunately there is no particular treatment for night terrors, children usually grow out of it.
It occurs in about six % of children between ages 3 to 12. Sleep hygiene, comfort of the child during the day should help. Parents of the child end suffering with sleep disturbance. Keep faith your child will grow out of it.
