Address stressors: Dreams are one way that our minds try to cope with or work through events in our lives. Scary dreams in kids may be precipitated by easily avoided events ( a particular movie/tv show) or be indicative of more serious stressors. A visit with your child's health care provider should help sort this out and lead to a costumized plan for your child.
