- An actual child or child-like person in your life
- An adult who has been acting like a child, or with the emotional disposition of a child
The need for self-nurturing, and responsibility for yourself
Dreaming that you have a child that you don't have in real life can represent:
- A feeling of responsibility for something or someone else in your life
- A need to pay more attention to your needs or take better care of yourself in some way
Also consider what stands out about the child, such as physical characteristics that represent an actual person (child or adult) in your life, age, or specific actions.
