AnswerIt is extremely common for children to talk in their sleep. Some children may even sleep walk. Most children have experienced the "boogyman complex" Children's brains have not fully developed, so they may not be in a full REM sleep. Children and adults dream every 1/2 hour, but most of us don't remember dreams (just the odd one.) I wouldn't be too concerned unless your child has dark circles under their eyes or lethargic from lack of sleep.

You did not mention how old your child is. If your child is below the age of 6 then here are a few tips:

Read your child a story (funny one) Put a night light in the bedroom Never have the child sleep with one or both parents, but until the child settles down it is advisable to sleep on the floor by the child's bed. Play a radio low with nice music.

If you child is 12 or older then try talking to them. Perhaps school is bothering them. If there is not peace in the family and parents are arguing or considering divorce (the biggest fear of children) this too must be discussed with that child.
