My 2 yr old daughter started waking up the last week in the middle of the night screaming. I'm not sure why. She goes to bed just fine but wakes a few hours later screaming. I can go in her room and hold her and she will stop but as soon as i lay her down again and leave she starts screaming. She isn't afraid of the dark because it's dark when she goes bed. Does anyone have suggestions on what i can do to help her stop doing this.

It sounds to me like she's doing it for your attention not necessarily because something is scaring her. Try ignoring it.

It sounds to me like night terrors. she doesn't necessarily have to be afraid of the dark or seen anything scary, shes at the age when night terrors start. after calming her down ask her what happened and maybe lay on her floor or sit by her bed until she falls back asleep. she will feel safe with you there.

I have tried ignoring it but it's so hard to ignore it for more then an hr especially when she is screaming from like 1-2am.
