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!

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!

    I believe what you said made a lot of sense. However, what about this?
    what if you were to write a killer headline? I ain't suggesting your information isn't
    solid., but what if you added something that makes
    people want more? I mean Dream Zone - My Children Get Kidnapped is a
    little boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create post headlines to grab people to click.
    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers
    excited about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it
    would bring your posts a little livelier.
