My 3 year old wakes up sometimes just with this sudden screaming which turns into uncontrolible(sp) crying and weeping. He doesnt want to be touched or picked up. I just feel so lost as im not sure what it could be. We have to leave him alone until he just suddenly stops crying. He will then get on your lap give you a cuddle and then want to go back to bed. I find it so frightning. Do these sound like night terrors? Is there anything i can do for him while this happens??
