Dream Zone - My Children Get Kidnapped

What could be scarier than a dream about a loved one being kidnapped?   Dream expert and author Lauri Loewenberg examines the nature of "kidnapping dreams," and what they might really mean.  

Dear Lauri,
Recently I've been having vivid dreams about my kids being in trouble, i.e. kidnapped or hurt in some way and I am unable to help them. Is this a common dream and does it interpret to mean something?

Dear Lauri,

Lauri:  Dreaming that your children are hurt or kidnapped is VERY common. You'll find you get the kidnapping dream when you feel life is pulling your little munchkin away from you. For example, when you don't see them enough because you are working too much or when they start pulling away simply because they are getting older. When we resist how fast time goes and how much they grow, we get the kidnapping dream. As far as your children getting hurt, well, the specifics in the dream make a difference as to the meaning. However, physical pain in a dream is usually connected to emotional pain in waking life. You may get that dream when your child is dealing with a painful waking life situation... or perhaps even when YOU are the one feeling emotional pain for your child. These dreams are in no way a warning that something terrible is going to happen but rather, they are a reflection of your deep love for them and the pain you experience watching them grow so darn fast!!  

Kriss replies:  Thank you. This response has been very helpful. My children are 11 and 15. Both are going through important life changes, ie.  My son is entering middle school and my daughter is becoming a woman!

    Thanks for all your efforts that you have put in this. Very interesting information. "Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels." by Faith Whittlesey.

    Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a excellent job with this. In addition,
    the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer.
    Superb Blog!

    Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed ..

    Any recommendations? Thanks a lot!

    Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Kudos

    I think that everything said made a ton of sense. But, think about this, suppose you added a
    little information? I am not saying your information is not good., however what
    if you added a headline that grabbed people's attention?
    I mean Dream Zone - My Children Get Kidnapped is a
    little boring. You ought to look at Yahoo's home page and note how they create news headlines to get viewers to click.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab people excited about what you've written. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
