My 6 year old son suffers from night terrors at


Q: My 6 year old son suffers from night terrors at first it was mild but now it is quite sever. Sometimes taking up to 20 minutes to make him fully alert. Tonight was the worst night terror he has ever had. Whilst in the middle of the night terror he started to choke on his own saliva and spit then he started to vomit all of whilst he was not awake and alert. What is it that could cause this? There is no stress or any traumatizing experiences he has had and theres no violence etc so what is causing this. How do I stop it?
