Sleepwalking and children
Is sleepwalking normal for children?
In children, sleepwalking starts between ages 6 and 12 and occurs more often in boys than girls. Children usually outgrow sleepwalking.
If you can, gently steer someone who is sleepwalking safely back to bed. Try to make the home safer, such as by adding gates to stairways, to prevent injury.
Trying to stick to a bedtime routine may help reduce the problem.
