This is a very frequent problem at this age called night terrors. In most cases there is no obvious cause for these nightv terrors. They will happen for a while and then your son will grow out of having them.When he wakes up with a night terror go to him and comfort him for a while and then leave him to fall asleep again. He will have no memory of this in the morning.
