Why is it bad to wake someone up when they're sleepwalking

Report as

Our second child had epilepsy and she would often sleep walk at night. The doctor told us it is not bad to wake a sleep walker and to wake her up and take her hand and put her back to bed.

Please refer to http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000808.htm about sleep walking. This is a government site, with an article on sleep walking and it explains how it is not dangerous to wake a sleep walker. It is recommended you waken a sleep walker, so they do not injure themselves.

It's dangerous to wake up a sleepwalker because it may cause them a heart attack, shock or brain damage. Sleepwalking can occur at any age, but it happens most often in children ages 5 - 12. Sleepwalking is often triggered by disruption of regular sleeping patterns or fever.
