A monster is something terrifying that has starred in the fantasies and nightmares of children since the dawn of Humanity. For many children, the mere presence of a monster in fables, stories or even songs is something that can not stand the fear that infuses them. However, for others it is quite fun.
Therefore, when a child dreams of a monster does not have to be a nightmare, and will depend on some factors that appear in the dream in question. So, what happens if our son closes his eyes and suddenly finds a monster on his mental screen?
The meaning of childhood dreams. Dreaming of monsters
That a child dreams at a certain moment with a monster is something very normal, so we should not worry too much. As a general rule, dreaming of a monster reveals that moment of uncertainty that the person has, -in this case, the child-, when something gets in their way and they do not know very well what to do.
To carry out the resolution of this conflict between himself and the monster he wants to overcome, we need to look further into the dream interpretation. If the child has an irre irremediable fear towards the monster and the dream becomes a nightmare without further action, we could be facing a problem in which the child is not happy with the authority he receives within his family. This could dislike certain
discomfort in the home, either because of a series of excessive norms for the child, or because he is living a process of change in his growth , which means that he does not feel completely himself. Something that will undoubtedly change with the process of maturity.The interpretation of monsters in children's dreams
On the other hand, beyond the
conflict that the child can live in this moment of change in his life -which translates into his dreams-, we can also do another reading, which it has to do with the shape of the 'enemy' in question. If it had a mummified appearance, something that instills a lot of fear in children as a general rule, we would be faced with that childish problem of truth and lies .This could cause some
instability in the child, who could be immersed in a process of change that would make him dream of this type of figures so usual in fables and legends. Marta Marciel.
