(SPM Wire) Children often need reassurance after having nightmares. Unfortunately, you may not always be there when they have bad dreams, such as at a sleepover or at overnight camp.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, a security object such as a favorite stuffed animal or a blanket can help a child feel relaxed and safe in bed. Another thing that can help is a relaxation technique. For example, having your child imagine a relaxing scene, such as being on the beach or watching a sunset, can help him or her relax after a scary dream.
