Dream Symbol: child

child

  • An actual child or child-like person in your life
  • An adult who has been acting like a child, or with the emotional disposition of a child
  • The need for self-nurturing, and responsibility for yourself

Dreaming that you have a child that you don't have in real life can represent:

  • A feeling of responsibility for something or someone else in your life
  • A need to pay more attention to your needs or take better care of yourself in some way
Also consider what stands out about the child, such as physical characteristics that represent an actual person (child or adult) in your life, age, or specific actions.

Tips to Understand Dream Meaning

Dream symbol meanings are different for each person. It's IMPORTANT to consider:

  • Personal meaning - What the dream symbol means to you, what it reminds you of, how it makes you feel.
  • Context - How the dream symbol appears in the dream. For example, in a dream about a bee - what was the bee doing, how and where it was doing it, and how did you feel about it?
  • Look beyond the obvious - A dream is often about something other than its obvious meaning. Physical events in the dream commonly represent mental or emotional matters.
