My child has nightmares and cries every night
My son keeps having nightmares every night and wakes up crying. It's becoming a real problem now as he doesn't want to go to bed. His nightmares involve a lorry and him crossing the road and missing the lorry, this continues until about the 4th and 5th lorry when it's just about to hit him then he wakes up! This is the nightmare he has most nights. Their are others too but that's the most common. He's scared to cross the road and becoming so bad tempered, no doubt through lack of sleep. He thinks it's a sign that something bad is going to happen.
