Have you noticed that when children dream of something they remember with intensity, at first, they seem to have lived it? It is as if dreams transport us to a parallel reality, and give us the opportunity to think and reflect on what happened.
Although often many situations that both children and adults live in dreams, seem pure fiction, all are subject to many interpretations if we explore the meaning of dreams.
Interpretations of children's dreams
The ability to dream is an activity that we must learn from a young age. As children grow they go through a series of stages of development in which the child is predisposed to produce a different type of specialized learning. To learn to dream it is important to encourage children to remember and pay attention to their dreams since they are small, because at an early age we have a much more open mind.
So, for example, instead of always telling stories to your children, try to tell them one of your dreams. If you keep the habit of sharing dreams with your children every time you remember one, they will also tell you theirs and you will be able to participate in a wonderful experience, since many times the subconscious is the one expressed through the dreams showing concerns or fears that the conscious part does not externalize or manifest.
Therefore, it is very important that, when sharing dreams with your children, avoid saying something similar to 'that is silly', because they are not. It is true that they are articulated in another plane of reality, that imagination, fiction and real elements are mixed, but what really matters of the dreams are not the scenes themselves, but the sensations that they produce in the child and which are the that can open the door of what is happening inside them and that we do not see during the day.
If you are interested in interpreting your dreams, yours and those of your children, numerous authors have been interested in this topic. However, it is not always advisable to share these psychological interpretations with the children because they may reveal parts of themselves that they do not understand or are not yet able to understand.
