Why children talk in sleep? Somnilokviya
Behind difficult day with its interesting and important events.
You train your child for a dream. But he everything cannot fall asleep in any way. The favourite fairy tale is read, the calming lullaby is sung, and the kid turns and cannot fall into a sleepiness in any way.
You try to finish it, promise to execute its, at first sight, simple requirements, mutter tender words. Anything, if only fell asleep. And here the long-awaited moment came. The calmed-down child peacefully snuffles in a bed, and you on tiptoe leave his room - it was necessary to remake a weight more of cases.
Having coped with affairs, finally you look to the nursery. The blanket is shifted, the tiny handle hangs down from a bed, and the child mutters something in a dream. Panic. And you make to yourself the promise that tomorrow it is necessary to show the son or the daughter to the doctor.
You do not hurry to do it. By medicine it is proved that every twenty fifth adult can talk in sleep. Agree, it is a lot of. And at children this phenomenon occurs more often than at the mature personality. Their brain is at a development stage and therefore emotional splashes from the events endured the day before are shown more brightly, in the form of incoherent babble during night or day rest. Such phenomenon received the name “somnilokviya“. It is the scientific term implying speech activity during a dream.
Let`s together try to understand the reasons inducing your baby to a snogovoreniye. The first prerequisite consists in the stress postponed in the afternoon. The word “stress“ should be understood not as the negative phenomenon here and as quite acceptable norm for the child. It can be strong emotion, reaction to some remarkable event or indelible impression. Everything is explained by such flash of endured. You should not worry and furthermore to resort to medicamentous intervention. Nothing strange occurred.
Predisposition to talk in a dream can be explained also with compensation of not smoothly running transition of yet not created organism from one phase of a dream in another. Our dream can be divided into two look: slowly current and quickly current. And, their change happens several times. Recurrence of alternation - 90 - 120 minutes.
It is proved that the main activity of the speech during a dream is the share of a superficial dream - when the person falls asleep, but still reacts to outer sound effects or activators. Often reaction is shown in twitching of extremities, in start of all body, the uncontrollable movement of eyeballs etc. of
Sometimes it is difficult for child to overcome transition from one phase to another, and as a result - his incoherent mutter. In that case you can help the kid. Caress him, tell the calming words. The baby right there will calm down and will strong fall asleep.
The third assumption we will charge absolutely still to small kids which begin to tell the first words or short phrases. When the kid begins to chirp something during a dream - know that it as if fixing of “the passable material“ in a day. Development of the little man happens by the principle of a sponge - it absorbs all new knowledge with the speed unusual for the adult. And even when is in Morpheus`s embraces, the child continues to study, savouring and chewing each heard new word, tries to understand it and to apply in the speech. You should not worry in this case, you have to rejoice. The child quite normally develops, grows and fills up the knowledge.
Your fidget is capricious in the afternoon, goes into hysterics, too violently shows emotions in the form of shout with tears in the eyes, during a dream you noticed excessive perspiration, a perspiration on a forehead and manifestation of sleepwalking, and after awakening he complains of the nightmares seen by it and cannot long recover? All this in total - the symptom of a mental disorder, and here to you is better to address experts. Psychologists, neurologists, somnologists can help.
Before going for consultation to the doctor, try to talk quietly to the child, to find out all his alarms and fears. Most likely, the kid will quicker trust in you, than the stranger in a white dressing gown. And you will be prepared for conversation with the doctor. But such set of symptoms meets infrequently.
Quiet dreams to you and your kids!
