Amor Chiquito has been having dreams and nightmares lately.
Her dream a few days ago:
“No, please, no, mine, my pen, my pen…” At that point, she reached for her pen and slapped me without meaning to!
She loves to write. Don’t you dare steal her pen, not even in her dreams!
Unfortunately, Amor Chiquito is having nightmares too. She keeps waking up crying. It seems like, at first, she can’t wake up. I hug her and tell her everything is ok and it does not help for the first few minutes. It is as if she does not hear me, as if I was not there. Some nights are worse than others. On some nights, it does not happen at all.
Any suggestions? Do you handle your children’s nightmares differently?
