Night terror

I was watching a show on how to raise children when the term 'night terror' was mentioned. It describes the condition of a child who wakes up in the middle of the night, screams and does some violent act yet he or she has no remembrance of what he or she has done the night before.

According to paediatrician, the mother should wake the child up 15 minutes before it happens so that it has no chance to commence. Additionally, the child should be read a story with a happy ending before he or she goes to sleep. Soothing music should also be played before the child sleeps.
