Dreams with a central motif - children, even if we don't have any in reality - are interesting in the sense that they represent the complex relationships we have, and it's interesting to note that they are more frequent in the lives of those who have had children, and also that women are a category that has such dreams more often.
These dreams can be even more specific - we can dream of our daughter or son, even if that's not our real-life situation.
The question is, what does this dream mean?
Children's dreams in general
As we've pointed out - dreams, where children are the central motif, are very common and are a representation of our complex relationship with the world around us; and such a dream could be a symbol of naivety or an immature aspect of us; that we don't know we have.
Dreaming of your own son
If you've been dreaming that you have a respectful, handsome son who is amazing to you and the whole family, such a dream is a very good sign.
It shows that the next stage of your life will be good, that there will be a lot of success with the projects or plans you're currently working on. You will achieve excellent results.
Commit to your work and projects and keep working hard, it will all pay off in the end. The time you invest now will not be wasted.
If, in a dream, you see your son suffering (crying, in pain, etc.), then this dream is a symbol of bad things to come.
Such a dream can be a very bad sign, revealing a physical injury or illness, or evoking an emotional problem or trauma that's difficult to deal with.
Whatever you actually see in your dream, take it as a warning that a very unfavorable period is ahead of you, and that you must face up to it.
It shows that you will encounter many difficulties and problems that will make life difficult for you.
We don't know how long you'll have to struggle with these problems, but you have to be strong and try to overcome every problem.
If you've dreamt that your son is married when in reality he isn't, this dream is a symbol that your family will face problems that won't be easy to solve.
If you've dreamt that your son has died, we're sure that's a very traumatic feeling for you.
But don't worry, this dream shows that you'll be very lucky in the period ahead and that things will work out very favorably for you.
The events you are about to experience will have a positive outcome and a positive effect on your life in general.
To dream that you have a son, and this is an important dream to examine, if not, in reality it suggests that you may have feelings for someone in your life.
Perhaps it refers to a romantic partner or companion, but maybe also to a close friend.
In either case, you feel you can't fully describe these feelings, and can't show them sincerely.
This dream may also indicate that you are currently in a dilemma with yourself.
You may not yet know exactly what you want in life, what you want to do, what your goals are or what your raison d'être is.
Perhaps you're thinking of changing professions or looking for a way to make a dream come true.
Also keep in mind that this dream may be the perfect sign that it's time to think seriously about what you want in life.
Determine your goals and work towards them.
If in a dream you're talking to your son, then in reality you may want to repair a broken relationship in the family.
You may feel that you don't get along well or that you don't understand each other, you may feel that you don't see each other often enough and that you spend too little time together.
You'd like to see a family member more often and have a close relationship.
This could be the starting point for improvement.
It's conceivable that recently you've been having problems, or that there's been a conflict between the two of you, which is why you're having this dream.
The son is the symbol of a relationship you want to repair.
If, in a dream, you're holding your son in your arms and kissing him, the dream carries good symbolism.
It shows that success and happiness await you in the period ahead, and also that your loved ones will encounter the same good fortune.
You'll probably experience an improvement in all aspects of life, but it may be temporary and uncertain.
However long this favorable period lasts for you and your loved ones, it's only important that you make the most of it.
If you physically punish your son in a dream, it may mean that you're concerned about certain actions; not necessarily your son's actions, but your own, in fact.
You think he might do something to reflect on you or create a serious problem.
This can lead you to be too controlling or strict with him.
You need to understand that, while it's sometimes necessary to set limits for him, you also need to set limits for yourself and not try to control his whole life.
On the other hand, this dream may have something to do with the stress you face in real life.
If your son is killed before your eyes, in a dream, then don't worry as you might.
Such a dream is not as frightening as it may seem while you're having it.
The symbolism of this dream is that you should work on yourself. Ask yourself what you're doing with your life and whether it's going in the direction you want.
Many people worry too much about other people's opinions and expectations.
Even if you're a man or a woman, whether you have children or not, you can dream of childbirth and the birth of a son, and such a dream is considered a positive sign.
It shows that you're in a very good place right now.
You have the right conditions and opportunities to finally start working on the projects you've been dreaming about for some time. Now is the time to begin the journey towards your dreams.
And in a version of a dream where your son calls you for help, if he's in danger, then such a dream, is a symbol of many difficulties in the period ahead.
On the other hand, it's possible that you're having problems with the organization of your time and that you're having problems because of it.
Advice for anyone who's ever dreamed of a son of their own
Dreaming about your son is usually a good sign.
It means that positive things are coming your way. It symbolizes new beginnings and new opportunities.
On the other hand, it can also symbolize the stress or worries you suffer in real life, and which are often linked to your son.
If you're unhappy with an aspect of your life and want to do something to change it, now's the time to examine all your options and check whether you have sufficient skills and resources for what you propose to do.
Remember, we are the architects of our own happiness.
Sometimes, dreaming about the son, your son, the dreamer's son, brings with it the possibility of waste.
As if you weren't spending enough time and energy on the right things and the right people, but on irrelevant and unnecessary things. Change that.
You're too involved in pointless activities, to the point where you don't even ask yourself whether you're doing what you love and whether you have enough time for yourself and your hobbies.
Time flies, and time spent with loved ones (the son is just one example) is priceless.
Our advice is to try to organize your life and not waste it on unnecessary things.
Focus on what's important to you, like family.
