Question: My son is 11 and has, over the years, struggled with going to sleep. We have spoken to him recently and he has said he’s had a nightmare where he gets lost and can’t find his way back to us. He said the feelings were real. He’s scared of going to sleep because he doesn’t want the nightmare again.
Do you have any ideas on how we can combat this? We have another 4 children and he makes quite a lot of noise about the fact he can’t sleep and often keeps them awake too.
