Five Minute Friday: Real

Real …

As some of you know I have a 5 yr old and a 6 yr old; both boys. They keep me busy everyday. They smooth my character and reveal character traits I lack. There are also so many sweet memories I have with them!
My 6 yr old in particular these last two weeks has been dealing with dreams. He states he has bad dreams and that he can’t get them to go away. He will ask “How did you get your bad dreams to go away when you were a little kid?” This kid expecting the answer from the most trusted person in his life … and I wasn’t sure how to answer him.
We talked about bravery and courage. We detailed good vs bad guys. We imagined changing the dream and inviting the bad guys over for breakfast or going bowling.
In the end we spoke of our need for Jesus and his ever powerful presence. We prayed for his help and for sweet dreams. Ultimately he needs to understand the difference between what is real and what isnt.
Have you dealt with a child and bad dreams before? If so I would love to hear your approach!
