My daughter has been waking up screaming with nightmares. How have you other moms dealt with this?

Becky thank you, it is hard to deal with. She still has night terrors even with the night light on. I am praying that she will grow out of this very soon.

My son does that too sometimes. Is the room dark or is there a night light? I know he hates the dark. When he has one of his night terrors I just go in there and comfort him. Some times he is still asleep and is fighting me so I have to rub his back to try to wake him. I might take him to my room and let him lay with me until he is calm, sometimes get him a snack or a drink. I just tell myself not to get upset with his because its not his fault and if I get mad or upset it makes him worst. He has a teddybear that he sleeps with and he uses a passy at night and I make sure he has those when I'm calming him down. Sometimes its easy other times its hard but I just try to stay calm for him
