If you’ve ever seen someone sleepwalking, then you know how strange, eerie, terrifying, or hysterical it can be. You might find yourself trying to explain to your still asleep daughter why it’s not time to go to gymnastics at 11:30 PM. Or maybe your husband wakes you up talking about the boat he wants to sail down the Nile River.
Perhaps you’re the one causing a scene in the middle of the night. Whatever the case, sleepwalking can be scary for both the sleepwalker and family and friends.
This strange phenomenon typically affects more children than adults, with the peak occurrence between the ages of 10 and 13.
