NIghtmares after meeting Dinos?


It has been about 2 nights since we visited Dinos in the National Science Centre. For those 2 nights in a row, Hafizah has been getting nightmares and keep refusing to sleep with her elder sister. Before this, Hafizah and Fathini have been sleeping on a separate bed and they were totally fine with the arrangement. But now, after the meeting the scary dinosaurs, Hafizah has regressed and refused to go back to her shared bed. She also has been waking up few times in the middle of night while crying and saying "I'm scared".

I just checked this definition of Nightmares from Wikipedia to make sure about the real explanation:

A nightmare is a dream that can cause a strong negative emotional response from the sleeper, typically fear and/or horror. The dream may contain situations of danger, discomfort, psychological or physical terror. Sufferers usually awaken in a state of distress and may be unable to return to sleep for a prolonged period of time.[1]

I wonder have any of your children, niece, nephew experiencing any nightmares after they have watched or seen anything scary? How did you react? What did you do to reduce the stress on your child? 

FYI, Hafizah was quite terrified when we asked her to take a picture next to or in front of those Dinos. That's why some of the photos were so blurred because she was trying to run away or get away from the Dinos. You can see her reaction from this photo:

Tie- dah tiap2 male baco semuo tu. harap2 male ni Fizah ok.

Nad- maybe diaorg ni kecik sgt kot jd tak faham yg Dinos tu bukan betul pun. Yg kakak dah umur 6 tahun tu, cool je.

Syida- It depends Syida. Kalau Aqid ok, takpe. Hafizah bab2 binatang dia penakut sikit.

Mila- skrg dah kerja balik susah nak bawak jln2. kena tunggu weekend pulak.

Lid- budak2 macam2 perangai betul. hehe
