It seems that your son is having a very common problem called night terrors. When he wakes up crying just go to him, cuddle him for a short while, kiss him goodnight again and then put him back in his bed and leave the room. Use a night light in his room. He must not be brought to your bed because that will start up another problem. This is a passing phase and he will grow out of this problem.
