What Do Dreams Mean?

  • Stephen Catalano


The topic of what children dream about is intriguing to almost anyone with even a passing interest in how the mind works or a fascination with dreams. Up until very recently, parents, educators, and psychologists alike were used to hearing only about those terrifying dreams in which children were awakened in fright in the middle of the night; or they heard about those dreams that survived in memory through the long night and were recalled the next morning. In fact, we now know that these dreams are only a very small portion of all the dreams children have during the course of a night’s sleep.
