Q.

NIGHTMARES?

Hi Doc

The last few weeks my five year old daughter starts talking and screaming in her sleep, she yells to leave her alone from myself to her sister and even kids at school.

Should I be worried?

Thanks

Night terrors and nightmares are common in children up to about 3 years of age.It may be that something is worrying your little daughter.Is she happy at school or do you think something may be worrying her there? Ask her teacher if all is well.
