In the world of dreams the rules of reality do not necessarily apply. Each dream is unique and it's a direct link to the soul and spirit. Psychology provides its own theories on what dreams mean, but so did tradition and the study of dreams for thousands of years before any relevant science had developed.
Dream Meanings - Child
If you dream that you are holding a small child then you will have troubles, but if you see many happy children then you will have much joy. Children dressed in lovely clothes signify that you will be freed of family burdens that have concerned you recently and will feel happy. If you dream that you kiss children then good things will happen to you while to hit a child means that you must be more careful.
