Your son may be having night terrors or he may just be behaving in this way because it is now a habit.If you suspect that he is having night terrors you should go to his cot when he wakes, reassure him and then leave the room again. Using a night light in his room will help. If he comes to your bed take him back to his cot immediately. If he returns the parent who did not take him back the first time must take him back. If he tries again take him back again and then only leave his door very slightly open or it can be closed. If he cries it will be the time to practice the controlled crying method.
