I have forgotten how old your son is and you did not mention it here. Is he about 20 months? He appears to be having typical night terrors which can be a very regular problem for a while but is fortunately usually a temporary problem. The cause is not usually obvious. Putting him into your bed is probably not a good idea as this may become a habit in itself. The usual advice is to go to his bed when he wakes with the night terror, to reassure him and to stay with him for a short while and then to leave his bedroom.Your son will benefit from having a night light in his room. Sometimes Rescue Flower remedy is recommended for children with this problem. No studies have been done to confirm its benefit but it may be worth trying.You will need to find out if he can take anything of this nature.
