What you describe sounds like classical "night time terrors" that may occur in children of this age. Normally the child does not wake up during these episodes and the best is to guide him back to bed and comfort him, without waking him. It is not necessarily an indication of emotional stress or other problems and usually passes with time. He is not naughty or misbehaved and you seem to be handling the episodes in the correct way. No medication is indicated, as long as these are the only symptoms and he is otherwise healthy
