Dreams About Children

What do dreams about children mean?

Children signify many things in a dream such as wanting to accomplish long repressed desires and wishes. The child in your dream may also be your inner child. Your inner child may be telling you that you need to grow and be nurtured. They also represent innocence and a carefree attitude. If you have children and you dreamt that you forgot them, then you may be overwhelmed by too many responsibilities. Dreaming of children also signifies your need to be needed and important to someone's life. If you are saving a child in your dream then you are protecting your innocence. You are doing what you can to protect who you are. Also, being separated from your children symbolizes setbacks you will have in an ideal.

I woke up in the night to find a cluster of around 6 children standing in my room laughing and smiling at me. I was so confused then woke up again and they were gone and i realised it was a dream... what does it mean because it freaked me out

I don't remember any of my children ever appearing in a dream. They are 10, 13 and 16 (all girls).

Any significance to this?

I dreamt that my 2 girls were playing in a cemetary jumping over two stone covered graves. The sun was shining and the day was beautiful, the mood was light and they were having fun playing. I remember telling them in my dream not to step on the graves because it was disrespectful so they ran around them and jumped over them giggling. It felt more like a park than a cemetary. But it scares me to think that there are two graves and I have two girls, plus I am a few weeks pregnant now.

I had a very vivid dream a few months back that i was sitting in someones living room and there was other people there but i couldn't see their faces, my main focus was the little boy who looked about 2 years old that was reaching up to me calling me mommy. The part that scares me the most is that he looked exactly like a guy i know. Can you please tell me what this means, my mother told my that i was dreaming of my first child but im not sure.

We went to a crowded movie theatre and had to sit in the front row. My 20-year-old daughters started dancing provocatively in front of the crowd. Later a huge guy started mauling my oldest daughter and I tried to get him off her by pinching him. She struggled and he tried to smother her. Finally, he got off and the crowd cheered for him. I felt like I didn't protect my daughter on so many levels.

I have dreamed that my 6 years old son body was covered with sores. They were white on the top some bigger some smaller. Me and my husband went to see the doctor, but the doctor was not very good in my dream. He started to pres one of them to see if something was coming out and water was coming out from the sores though they were looking like something else should have come out of there. My son was in my arms crying , but with no sound and I was telling him that is ok if he will cry load cause it must be very painful. He did start to shout that he doesn't want the doctor to touch him any more and then I wake up. Please let me know what this dream means.

Well it started when I was at some strange persons house and I was someone else. The power went out and so I when to go pack with my flashlight and it was not working. Then when I looked up my friend was standing there saying 'ya the video on the phone are not working either" so of course I checked my phone's video an I recorded my and my friend and an extra person that looked like a girl. Then I appeared into my cousin father's car with my two cousins and my aunt and uncle. We were going down a back road and when we got closer there was a white fishing pear with people fishing and camping. We passed it and it felt like twenty minutes later we were at a strange cabin that felt familure to me but when I walked closer to the house I heard people start taking pictures behind me. It felt like knew the people they look as if they just married. Then the color in her dress turns blue and everyone says get in the photos and I said "I don't like my self in photos I am just going in side" so the everyone continues to take pictures and I walk to the kitchen and I see a strange dome and then I go to walk upstairs and before I get the a boy comes out of no where. I felt a little scared and then I wasn't. "You know who owns this right?" Said the little boy." I said yes I do my mom us to work for him. He looked at me and he finally said something"ya he us to bring us food but everyone he did we did not take a lick of it. It usually went to wast. unlike the food we buy." Then I smile and the I look out side one last time and then I wake up. What does this mean?

I had a dream that me and my ex were in a race and that when it finished we ended up tied so we both got the gift which was having a free meal at any restaurant ... So we went to the restaurant and he ordered the food and I looked for the seat with my best friend. when he came back I noticed that he sat next to me . So after that we decided why not go to the movies but then again I ended up sitting in the middle. Just when the movie started he tried to put his arm around my shoulders and I gladly accepted it . After the movie we went our own ways but at night I got a message from him saying "good night beautiful " I just replied "GN to you too".(so apparently in dreams there is a tomorrow ) next day it was dark and I was at school and the day went fine until the busride home was pretty weird cuz he sat next to me again w/out saying anything but he invited me to ice cream . We got to the 🍦Shop and ordered and payed. After we walked our own ways....few minutes after it started raining and I forgot my backpack at the shop . Then I heard someone calling my name and it was him he gave me that baby smile that I always loved about him . I thanked him and walked away but he pulled me back into a kiss. AND THATS WHERE IT ALL ENDED. (Yes that is the dream I had ) p.s I kinda miss him tho

Danielle pauli @ 2016-09-03 18:24:14
I was in an unknown house and i was watching this little girl and her grand-ma was asleep.
The little girl was drawing an then the dad came home, when he saw what she was drawing with,
Which was a very old calligraphy pen he said "No no no, what have you done."
"I didn't? What?"
I didn't understand till the little girl stood up. Her eyes
Black and around faded out the blackness into pail skin.
Then the grandmacame out and said something in another language.
Then the paper set on fire where ever the ink went which she was three and
So it was everywhere.
Then the dad said
"come on!"
And dragged me outside to the front.
When i looked back
the little girl is looking out the wondow with the grandma.
And i couldn't really hear what the grandma said but it sounded like she said "Dont do it."

And it's been my 4th time having the dream.

I dreamed I was walking to the car with my friend. He was on the phone, I was walking with cake in my hand. There was this little boy, it was kind of creepy at first. He was following us. Whenever I would turn around, he would look straight at me. Later on, feeling a little nervous, I turned around one final time to ask him why he's following us. I thought he wanted to grab the cake and run or wanted my friend's cell phone or something. I turned around, asked him what he wants. He answered: “I want you to add him on facebook”. I asked his name and surname. He gave it. Then my friend and I got into the car. This is the bizarre part. The boy ran to the car, got in. I immediately took him out of the car. I can't make sense of it. The rest of the dream isn't as confusing to me.

Clare @ 2016-10-30 06:28:47
I keep dreaming that I leave my child and then after several hours remember that I had left her and start panicking because I don't know where she is - this is always when I wake up crying

Kataya @ 2016-11-17 16:06:01
I had a dream of my son running off I wasn't paying attention and some how he got shot in the head but the bullet didn't go through his head there was just a circle with the print of the bulit
And his skin and just a lol blood and I seen him I didn't notice it at first that a lady tool him and got on the ambulance so I got on too and o started freaking out when they tolde he was shot in his head bit TJE bulit didn't go through because my son has a permanent knot on his forehead and it's really hard and I'm guessing the bulit couldn't penetrate through his forehead...
I'm just trying to get a clue to what this dream means I'm a lil freaked out bit my sons okay in real life

Violet @ 2016-11-27 23:24:53

My children are adults in their late 20's and early 30's but I never dream about them as adults. All of my dreams of them are as young children.

Kitch @ 2017-03-11 01:52:02
I always dream of my 18 year old son as a toddler. I don't know what this means. Is it because I want him to always be my baby or is it because i think he's still a child? Or is it something more ominous?

If anyone can provide their take i would appreciate it. I can be emailed at richardsemily73@gmail.com.

Thank you!

My youngest son is 20 now. I had a dream last night that he was around two years old and had a bag and the handles he tied with a long red string he was wearing shoes and shorts that were too small for him and laying next to a door by the bag that he packed, I pick them up and told him I needed to change his shoes and shorts because what he put on were too small and he said OK and then I woke up.

Donna @ 2017-05-12 17:20:24
I had a dream that a creepy looking little girl with messy dark blonde hair and a dirty white night gown wanted to hug me so I let her (even though she looked creepy) but then she began licking the side of my face fast and rough while laughing. I was trying to push her off of me but she was super strong. She also wrapped her legs around me and was moving her feet back and forth digging them into my back. It was creepy and disgusting. I finally woke up but what does this mean?
