Our son has been struggling with night terrors for the past half year or so. In our case, it seemed to be caused by some underlying stress (his biological father has been completely out of the picture for 3 years and I just married his mother this spring).
Tonight he had another panic attack (he has recently started calling me Dad, resulting in some confusing feelings). When he woke up, he was talking semi-coherently (as is usually the case) and said he wanted chocolate.So we gave him a little piece of dark chocolate. He ate it and came to. It's a much nicer way to wake a child than ice on the feet or a spritz of water... so if you're facing a child gripped in a semi-conscious nighttime panic, try a little bit of dark chocolate. (But be sure it's too small to choke on!)

My daughter would have night terrors all the time. She's now 6 years old and they are getting worse. She would basically have bad dreams all the time, I remember when she went through the stage about stinging nettles. She would not go anywhere near them, especially on our allotment and in the woods as they are very narrow areas. She once had a bad dream about stinging nettles when she was sleeping in our bed. She said a good dream with a purple sunset turned into a bad dream when she walked into her school playground and saw a pit with stinging nettles she had never seen before in real life. She told me the stinging nettle could talk and said in a woman's voice, I will sting and sting and sting around. The dream ended straight away and she immediately woke up and claimed she had a bad dream about stinging nettles and kept checking the bed for them. She has also said she has seen 'scary stuff' like content from baby toys she's scared of, scary noises, voices and songs. She sometimes tells me she can hear the voice of a person in her dream but cannot see the person while sitting on the stairs or in bed. If your child sees or hears a person in their room, then is most possibly a resident ghost or just a dream.
