Child sleep talking

I just found out my oldest, 8, sleep talks. He doesn't just mumble things, he actually speaks full sentences. I read that this is normal.

Does anyone else have a child that sleep talks? And how long did it last? Was there anything bad about it?

My sisters daughter is four and she sleeps talk, whenever she sleeps over it is funny to hear to talking. Sometimes she has full conversations. It is funny to listen to her.
My mother said that I did that same thing and i also walked in my sleep. She said she could always tell when something was bothering me because that is when I would do it and sometimes she could talk to me and find out what it was that was bothering me.
I did grow out of it.

Oh my neices and nephews talked so much in their sleep that you could actually have a conversation with them. My sister used to really have fun with them when they'd do this and they didn't remember anything in the morning. One of her 3 kids did turn out to be a sleepwalker when she got a little bit older. But it didn't last long.

All 3 of mine do too. My husband and i do also when we are very tired. So maybe that is why? We've all yelled, talked and i even caught my son laughing his butt off when he had a high fever. It scared me but the doctor said it was normal for that to happen. So I think it's harmless and just enjoy the laughs.

My 3 and two year old both do. I talk in my sleep too. I've done it my whole life and they have since they started talking too. I don't think there's anything wrong with it that I know of.

I still sleep talk, so good luck on that one! :) People who were awake were able to have a few full sentences back and forth with me before too

LOL my 2yo does. I sleep talk, everyone does it. It's normal and I don't think there's a definitive time that it lasts.

Do you or your hubby talk in your sleep? I know I do and my 2 1/2 year old does. My hubby tells me about conversations that he's had with me in my sleep, and I don't remember a thing about it. I don't think theres anything wrong with talking in your sleep, it just is a little annoying at times since I have woken myself up by talking really loud and my 2 1/2 year old has woken me up a few times, so I don't always get a good night sleep because of it but haven't had any other problems. I also sleepwalk, as far as I know so far my 2 1/2 year old doesn't sleepwalk.
