Sleepwalking is a common condition in children. A sleepwalking child is often described as not knowing where they are, having slow speech, and having a delayed response to questions or requests. Some children will get dressed, wander around their rooms, or go to the refrigerator. The most common age for sleep walking is 10 years, and about 14% of children have experienced sleepwalking at this age. Overall, about 29% of children experience sleepwalking at least once during childhood. Children whose parents had been sleepwalkers are more likely to develop it themselves.
