My almost 8 year old has begun sleep walking. It is strange to watch him. He will often walk to the fridge, open the door, look in, and stand there. DH or I will gently turn him around, send him back toward his bedroom and he will go back to bed.
Last night he "woke up" crying. I ran to his room. He was just sitting in his bed. His body was very tense, he was squeezing his legs together, grabbing for me and pulling me towards him. His eyes were open but he wasn't awake.
