What are night terrors?

Night terrors (or sleep terrors) are a condition where the child is suddenly aroused from deep sleep and appears to be severely scared or frightened. During these episodes you may wake up to find that your child is screaming or crying at night, but that it's nearly impossible to wake them or console them. The episodes can last from a few minutes to 30 minutes and can occur nightly.
