Insomnia and Nightmares

A good friend of mine just took custody over his son while the mother is in rehab and he asked me to be his nanny. Apparently, there was a lot of fighting with boyfriends at the mother's home and I'm pretty sure that has something to do with why he can't sleep at night. Most of the time he tells me he's just not tired yet, but he has told me that when he closes his eyes, he sees things so horrible that he doesn't even want to tell me. I've tried talking to him and comforting him, but nothing really helps. I would love it if someone knew of an herbal recipe that can put him at ease and make him sleep, but any advice is welcome at this point! Thank you for reading!
