Have you ever dreamed about something terrible that happened to your child?

I dreamed a bad dream earlier this morning about my oldest daughter. I was in my closet and I told my daughter to take off her pull up/training pants. She said that she could not do it. She said because it was wet. She told me the man made it wet. I was like, what man?? oh my goodness! I started to think of whom all that she was around when she went out that day. The face of the man, that I knew messed around with her came into my vision. I was so mad and upset. I was planning on telling my husband about it. And that is when my dream went blank. This really made me feel scared and upset. How could a man just mess around with my oldest daughter and then took her virginity away? She is a young child. I felt so disgusted and angry because I was not there to stop this man from taking advantage of my daughter. This dream felt so real, it really did. I thought that it actually happened, but it did not. Whenever I dream about something bad, it will scare me so badly, until the point that I think that it actually happened. My nightmares seem so real.

Dreams can seem very real. It must have been horrifying. I have two girls and it has always been a great fear of mine that something like that might happen. You just never know. I used to have a dream about a drain hole full of water. I used to dream that my youngest would fall in it and I couldn't get to her. I would wake up sweating and about to cry. Thanks goodness I haven't had that dream for a long time now. It seemed very real.

hi dream I think its because you may be a bit of a worrywart like me and it comes out in your dream. You just want to be the best mom ever and I can sure understand that.the nightmare must be really frightening you. some dreams are so real you think its really happening and then you finally wake up and are so glad this was just a dream.cream you must convince your self that those night mares are really untrue and nothing to worry about. know you are taking special care to protect your daughter then just forget about the dreams.Cream they are only dreams, so do not beat yourself'up; for something you only dreamed.

I keep having the same dream about my children. I have 3 boys 8,5 and 17 months. I dream that we are driving somewhere I have no clue were we are going. But anyways in my dream we are hit by a drunk driver in the middle of the day. My light turns green I make it to the middle of the road and all of a sudden we are hit on the passnger side. And slame into a telphone poll that cut my car in to two piece. All three of my children are killed. BUt they suffer and do not die right away I can hear them screaming for me but I can't get the seatbelt undone.to get out of the car. The ambulance arrives. and comes to me first and I say no save my children please they need you more then I do. Please get them out. They do but on the way to the hospital my children sadly die. And I walk away with some cuts and some broken bones. THe drunk driver is later killed by my husband in the hospital. And as I'm being wheeled out of the hospital to go home I wake up. And run to my boys room to make sure they are still here with me. And they are of course THANK GOD!!! I wish I knew what this dream meant. DOes anyone know a book that can tell you what your dreams mean???

I too have had dreams that seem so real and it really can be scary! I had a dream one time when my oldest (4) was still a baby that she was in the bath tub, my hubby came home from work, and I poked my head out the bathroom door to say hi and my daughter started drowning in the tub. I was frozen, I couldn't move to get her, and then it went quiet and she went stiff and floated to the top! I woke up, went and checked on my daughter who was of course fine, and then I came back to bed and started to bawl. I woke my husband up, he asked what was wrong, and I told him about the dream. He hugged me, tod me he was sorry it happened as that would have been scary, he re-assured me it wouldn't happen because I'm such a good mum, and then we cuddled until I fell back asleep! It was SOOOOOOOOOOO scary!! I HATE dreams like that!

Hi Cream. I am so sorry you had such a bad dream as this. I know it was just a dream to you but God may be warning you to watch your child. I take a lot of my dreams serious. I don't want to scare you but I would always stay on gaurd when it comes to my children.

I never have any nightmare that something happen to my children. I hope this will not happen. I think if you do not think something bad too often and it will never come into your dream. What people say is correct where you will dream of what you are thinking during the day.
