Does your child also get scared at night or do he/she have bad or scary dreams? Suddenly waking up and fear is a common problem in children. Mostly, children start to feel the same way they hear or see things around them. 
If your children are also fighting the nightmare problem, then the below tips may be helpful for you.

1. First and foremost, assure your child that you are there for them and nothing bad is going to happen. Most children need trust, assurance and your presence.

2. In such a circumstance, never get angry on your child (for having a bad dream), instead, try to explain and calm them down.

3. Keep your temper calm and tell them everything is fine and they are safe.

4. Rub their hair or back, it will give relief and bring peace to the children's minds.

5. Tell them that it was only a nightmare and not a reality. Try to grab their focus and attention on peace and good things.
