Today marks the first time my son has actually expressed to me he had a nightmare. Most nights he has woke up crying we would assume it was because of a bad dream but we also have to run through the check list of what else it could be. He wouldn’t express what was bothering him in the past and that was a big reason for checking his temp, his bedsheets, an anything else it might be. So to hear him tell me he had a bad dream was first off sad, but second kind of a relief because now I had a footing to stand on when helping him through his feelings.
Fear can creep in at a young age for out children and in todays episode I talk about how my son felt he was lost when he woke up to what seemed to be an empty house. When I put my son to bed the other night I went into the garage to gets some work done. Little did I notice that he had got up and out of bed only to find himself in an “empty” house. When I came in he looked at me a little scared and told me he got lost. He was referencing a book we’ve read at night about a puppy who gets lost in a grocery store.
