My little girl also used to have them around that age and untill 3 years old, more or less, it was a difficult time, because there was not a single night where she woulddn't wake up two or threee times screaming. Anyway, much like Peter, what I did was hold her tight, assure her, telling her mom was there and everything was alright and that was it... It's not very conforting, I know, but I don't think there is much more to be done. Now, my girl is four and night terrors seem to have disappeared...
