Dreaming of losing son

Dreaming of losing son

Dear Janet Louise,
I had a dream that I was in a shopping centre with my five-year-old son and couldn’t find him. I feel like I have lost him.

Leigh, by email

Dear Leigh,
A very traumatic feeling indeed and a parent’s worst nightmare. Your dream represents feelings of self-worth. You are trying to establish and make sense of who you are. This usually occurs when a signi cant event happens. Have you been feeling overwhelmed with the everyday stresses of life? Also, when our child begins school, all of a sudden we feel like we are losing them – but actually your dream represents forgotten aspects of yourself. You have high hopes and are longing to reclaim your youthful ways
