Sleep Disorders in Children
Night terrors: When a child has sudden emotional upheaval when he is in deep sleep like “emotional outbursts, fear, and motor activity” he experiences night terrors. But do not wake him up. This behaviour is common with children between 4-8 years and they may not be aware of their actions when they are awake. Your child could also be stressed or traumatized in this situation. He could be bullied in school or stressed about his performance in his exams.
