If you've got a wee one who wakes up paralyzed with fright at night, end his nightmares with pleasant thoughts before bed. A Sugar staffer who had trouble sleeping when she was lil, told me about her then teenage sister's remedy — a dream jar. It was filled with pink and blue papers with all kinds of adventures written on them from "Tonight you will ride on a unicorn" to "You're going to Disneyland with your family." Each evening she had the child choose one before she fell asleep and it worked. The nightmares were willed away.
