We all have nightmares from time to time, but they can be very upsetting for children.
Help them feel safe by acknowledging and comforting their fears.
Nightmares typically start between the ages of three and six. They happen during deep sleep, usually in the early hours. Unlike night terrors, children can remember nightmares (or remember feeling afraid) after waking.
We take your safety and privacy seriously
You don’t have to share your details with us – there are lots of reasons why you might want to remain anonymous, which we will respect. All calls are confidential, and we will always seek your agreement before we share any of your details with other organisations. The only time we will share information without your consent is if we think there is a life-threatening situation, or if you or someone else might be at risk of significant harm. On these occasions we may need to contact the Police, Ambulance Service or Children’s Social Care.
We also share anonymised data with the commissioners of this service. By using Parent Talk, you understand and give your explicit consent to this.
Your email address will not be used for any reason beyond giving you parenting information, support and advice.
