My four year old experiences nightmares.  She has woken up many times crying and coming into our room in the middle of the night complaining she had a nightmare.  There has been times when I have woken up to find her in our bed.  

Many things can cause a child to have a nightmare, such as watching something scary on television,  even though it might not be scary to other people.  We don't watch anything scary around our children.  We have to be careful which animated movies we watch with our four year old because she will have a nightmare. 

When your child has a nightmare the best thing to do is reassure them so they feel safe and secure.  When my four year old cries in the middle of the night I always go into her room and give her hugs and kisses and tell her everything is okay.
