    My daughter has been suffering from night terrors for about 2 years now. When she goes to her dads she seems happy and loves spending time with him. When she comes home when she goes to sleep during the night I hear her shouting no no no. And don’t do that. And sometimes lashes out. Some times it really upsets me. I’ve spoke to her dad about it, but he says she doesn’t do that at his house. And I think he gets pretty annoyed because every now and again I ask mention it to him. My daughter is 6 years old. I ask her when she’s awake why she cry’s she says she doesn’t. Then goes very quite and won’t tell me. So I just drop the conversation ask I can tell she doesn’t want to talk about it. Any advice?

    if you haven’t tried, you could let her watch her favourite movie/disney etc shortly before going to bed. more happy/positive memories might help her sleep.

    I have experience with night terrors and it mainly involved my daughter (was 4, now 5) having a sleep routine which was seemingly wildly different to what is done on the regular at home.

    I made her bedroom feel more relaxing with soothing hanging unicorn lights and diffuser with lavender in the night to help maintain a calm atmosphere.

    I found for me that any screen time before bed was also not helping so I took it out the routine.

    It took a while but I am now sleeping soundly in the night… just need to teach her how to lay in bed last 5am now
