How to Help Child Deal With Nightmare

Lil Community: Any Tips For Stopping Nightmares?

Nights can be scary! This post was submitted by an anonymous reader in the A Place to Vent group.

My 5-year-old was a great sleeper, until recently. Since Thanksgiving, he has been plagued with nightmares that seem to wake him up almost every night. We've switched our bedtime reading books to nice, quiet tales (Dr. Seuss works wonders for lulling him off to sleep), eliminated any strange shadows from his room, and even toned down our pre-bed activities. But the nightmares persist. Anyone have any suggestions for eliminating them for good? I don't think I can take another night of middle-of-the-night screeching!

Let it all out in our anonymous A Place to Vent group over in the LilSugar Community.
