In brief: See doc...

First, make sure that her home environment is safe.
...And install temporary locks high up so she cannot reach etc...Of course to use at night while she is asleep. If there is a strong family history of this, she may get better later on. In the meantime, get her evaluated to make sure all is ok.. Good luck...

In brief: Work on sleep

After you kid proof your home, work on her sleep pattern.
Sleep walking/talking/night terrors are often triggered when a kid has insufficient restful sleep.It flares when they get less and diminishes when they sleep more. Working on a way to get her 10 hrs of productive sleep/night can help end the pattern.If you need help with this see her doc and get a referral to a developmental ped.
