Question: My son is now five, almost six years old. I can’t remember a time when he slept through the night. I have tried all of the SuperNanny tricks, and everything I have read in books. We might get through a few nights, but then it comes right back.
He claims to dream of aliens, although, I don’t know when he ever heard of aliens. I have looked back at the movies and cartoons, but they are all kid tested, mother approved.He has woken up screaming on several occasions. Now, when he does fall asleep, he tends to wake up and just cry. In the middle of the night, I know I get angry and that can’t help; but he is my son and I am worried. It makes me sad that he can have dreams that are so scary at his age. What can we do?
