This post is just for a little advice really.
One of my boys is reaching the age where he will soon be asked to go on overnighter trips with the school. He would be all for it, but he is also quite nervous about it. He wants to go, and I’d like him to go, but there is a problem.
He is a sleepwalker. And he is a regular sleepwalker who will get up, out of the bedroom, down the stairs etc etc. He also still has night terrors. Now that isn’t too much of an issue, as lots of adults I suspect still get night terrors.
The problem is the sleepwalking while in a night terror. If he is sharing a room with another child, it would freak them out to see him like that, and they won’t know how to react to it.
If I go, and he shares a room with me, then it singles him out as different from the other kids. The school might not even let me go with him, so it is a long shot whatever route I decide to take.
In a strange place, he WILL sleepwalk, and he WILL open a locked door, and he WILL go the route he goes at home.
My last option is to keep him off.
What way would other people go in?
I know which way I am leaning towards, but I don’t want to say just yet, I’d like some other peoples opinons and possible suggestions before I say.
