Your children’s dreams may be a way of fulfilling a wish to do something like ride that elephant or they may be sorting out a problem they have had in the day in a very simple way or the dream  may be helping them bridge a fear or problem that they are finding hard to express.

We all need to sleep and that applies to children too.  When we sleep we dream, and who is to say that dreaming isn’t one of the main reasons why we sleep.  Children spend more time than adults sleeping so not only do they need more time to rest their
