Most parents know what it’s like to comfort their child after the occasional nightmare. But what do you do when it’s a more alarming nightmare? Could it be a night terror (or sleep terror)? If your child’s fear is inconsolable, no matter what you’ve tried, it might be.
While I haven’t experienced this myself I know several friends who’ve had this discussion trying to determine what’s going on. Tonight my husband shared a great article with me about the difference between nightmares and night terrors. It even has a chart with symptoms and the corresponding strategies to help calm your child at night. I’m pinning it on Pinterest and bookmarking it but I just had to share it with you too.
