Hi! This is my first post. I'm hoping for some advice and/or information on "Night Terrors".
My 3 1/2 yo son occasionally will have a night terror. Sometimes it's 5 minutes, other times, it's 15 minutes. He's had them since he was about 2 yo. My husband and I adopted him when he was 9 months old, from Kazakhstan (former Russian republic), and his mother was diagnosed w/ scitzophrenia (wrong spelling!), but we don't know what their definition of that is, compared to our definition. Usually he's a happy kid, although he has a temper sometimes. It's so hard to watch him screaming - legs up in the airs, sometimes screaming "mommy!" I keep wondering if it's because I spank him, and how long do night terrors last? Is he going to b 8 years old and still having them? Thanks for "listening"!!
