Nightmares or trouble sleeping
- 21 June 2011
If you're having nightmares or trouble sleeping because of something you've heard in the news:
- Tell your mum or dad - help from them will make you feel much better.
- Try talking about your nightmare or even drawing it. This will help you to confront your fear.
- Surround yourself with things that make you feel secure at night - even if it is your old teddy bear that you keep hidden from your mates!
- Try to balance the news you read. If you read a sad story then try and read a happy one before you go to bed.
