Overview

Understand the rich tapestry of your child's inner world! With fewer inhibitions than adults, children eagerly share their dream life and visit their worst nightmares. But they often don't have the vocabulary to express their feelings. Open up the lines of communication and help youngsters tap into a joyous fount of creativity and a source of intellectual and social development. Using a variety of imaginative techniques, such as Dreamercises, children can safely explore and come to terms with their nightmares. Stimulate pleasant dreams by suggesting scenarios to "revisit" that night--perhaps from a story or a cherished, favorite event. Encourage awareness with the "Dream Finder," which gives parents questions that gently and positively guide a child to talk. The extraordinary color drawings will help them visualize and focus on their dreams. With illuminating real-life case histories that show just how much youthful dreams reveal and a dictionary of common images, you'll have a head start in assuring that your child has a happier, more fulfilled life. 144 pages (all in color), 8 x 10.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Dr. Spurr gives parents insight into the dreams of their children. The book is divided into sections which introduce and define three basic types of dreams--reality based dreams, fantastic dreams and nightmares. There are real case examples of children's dreams from each of the dream categories. The author encourages creative communications about dreams and their significance between the parent and child. Included are some simple techniques that describe how parents can help their child enjoy dreaming and find understanding and benefit from their dreams. 1999, Sterling Publishing Company Inc., Ages Adult, $14.95.
