Sleepwalkers

Tori Rebel Tori Rebel
A friend at work is having problems with her son who has started sleepwalking. I've never had an incident with one, but was thinking how troublesome it might be if my boyfriend was. He's significantly larger than me and can do things like drive which makes just the thought frightening. Has anyone here had to deal with sleepwalking issues with themselves or a partner? How did it effect you and how did you handle it? It's something I don't know much about and hadn't thought much about until now.

I have not but the thought of it sends my anxiety into a tailspin. I think of kids sleepwalking and leaving the house. If my daughter was you want to bet this place would be locked up like fort knocks and all out of her reach

My bf used to sleepwalk. He also has ADD, and there might be a correlation. As he got older, he did it less, though. It's rare for him to do it now, however.

I am a sleep walker and my kids, including my 10 month old are also sleep walkers. Generally most walkers won't do things that could put them in jeopardy as they do have their eyes open and are, on a deep level, interacting with their surroundings. On the other hand enough people have had problems so it's not something you can be blase about. Contrary to popular myth you can gently wake a sleep walker without them getting violent or having fits. They can be confused and will usually drift back to sleep if guided gently back to bed.

I have sleepwalked twice that I can remember, and apparently voiced some opinions to my parents that I wouldn't otherwise have expressed, lol. My brother is a sleepwalker... when he was smaller and we lived at our old place, my mom would have to put the babe gate up every night so he wouldn't fall down the stairs. At the current house, though, he would have to walk past her room to get to the stairs and she's a very light sleeper.

I sleepwalked a lot as did my sisters.

One time I got up and went into the bathroom, stripped butt naked and went back to bed. Was very confusing the next morning haha .

One of my sisters got out of bed, walked through 3 rooms, down a hallway and out the front door. Luckily my parents saw her and grabbed her before she went too far away from the house.

My other sister got up during a nap, came out in the dining room, sat at the table and peed on the chair. Got up and went to bed again, somehow staying asleep the whole time. Mom was pretty ticked at first but then realized how funny it was.

That's what my friend does with her son...she just takes him by the hand or the shoulders and guides him back to his room. She's scared to death of him going outside though, but luckily their house is older and his bedroom door sticks a little and makes a lot of noise when it's opened so she's heard him every time.

OMG! My boyfriends sons (6 y.o. twins) will get up to pee in the middle of the night and take all their clothes or at least their pants and underwear off and go back to bed buck naked or just in their shirts. Freakin adorable...as long as they don't do it forever. But at 6, it's adorable.

I used to sleepwalk, so now I deadbolt the door. Though I haven't since I was young.

I don't sleepwalk, but I can have a conversation in my sleep.
It's best if you don't touch them while sleepwalking... but you will want to be able to lock them in the room so they don't hurt themselves while doing it.
