Has anyone ever dealt with their child having night terrors? This is a real issue with Evan. The doctor said some kids get them and others don't. Don't know if it's genetic or not since Evans cousin also got them between the ages of 9 months and older. Evan has them a few times a month and he screams for about 45 minutes but he really isn't awake. I'm told by the doctor that it will run it's course and he'll outgrow it. It breaks my heart though and makes me wonder what is going on in his head during this time, especially since he isn't even really awake.
Ally has been getting them - she is 6. They didn't start with her until this year and it's not because she doesn't get enough sleep or that she is watching anything scary on tv or anything like that. It just happens here and there... is happening less over time. The only other person in my family that I know who has gotten them is my cousin so I don't really feel like it is a genetic thing. DH and I researched it online and everything we read was confirmed by her doctor. She isn't awake so trying to calm or reason with her doesn't work. It's a scary thing for a parent to go through! Luckily the kids don't remember it happening.
