My cousin son is 2 and he wakes up in the middle of night crying bloody murder...but as soon as you place him back in bed hes fine...what can we do to get him to stop crying?

sounds like he might be having "night terrors". Might be worth it for you cousin to take him to his pediatrician for a visit. Let the doc know what's going on. Is it about the same time everynight? My daughter and my nephew went through this as well. My daughter also has ADHD so it's hard for her to "slow down" and fall asleep to begin with and she would always wake up about 2am! Not fun. I started giving her Melatonin about 20 minutes before bed time. Melatonin is a natural suppliment available at most drug stores, pretty inexspencive, and is the natural sleep aid your body releases at bed time. I helps her fall asleep and stay asleep. I LOVE IT!!! Just a thought, God bless...
