For children troubled by nightmares, comfort from parents is usually all that’s needed to soothe them. “Talk to them, hug them, kiss them – give them a lot of reassurance,” suggests Dr. Marc Weissbluth, a clinical professor emeritus of pediatrics at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University in Chicago who has studied sleep issues in children. In addition to nightmares, another common frightful sleep problem some children face is night terrors, which usually begin within a couple hours of a child falling asleep. “It can last five to 15 minutes and the child looks panicky – very frightened,” he notes.
