  • welcome to my world. put high locks on the doors and keep your bedroom door open or set up a baby monitor. mine is 12 and she became my step daughter 2 years ago but i have been deeling with her sleepwalking for three years but her dad says shes done it since 2.

  • I have seen and read about this. You cannot stop it and should never wake them while they are doing it, it can be very traumatizing for them. All you can do is make sure they are safe. Put locks on doors if you must or install those alarms that go off when a door is opened, I have seen those alarms at my local dollar store(they are not expensive!). Good luck!
