      My very bright and imaginative 7 year old has recently started asking things like “what can I do to make sure I dont have bad dreams?” And during the day asking “this is real life, right?” So I think her dreams are so vivid that she has a hard time mistaking dreams from reality.
      Anyway, any suggestions on resources or tricks that worked for you on this topic would be welcome.

      Sounds like a future physicist to me! I would suggest telling her to eat all her fruits and vegetables, because sometimes an upset stomach or indigestion can be the cause, and also write this down on a list of questions she can ask her doctor on the next visit.

      When my son was having trouble with bad dreams, I bought a dreamcatcher for his room. It made him feel better that the dreamcatcher would capture the bad dreams and only allow happy dreams.

      maybe check on (and decrease) how much “screen time” she is getting

      I think your child is dealing with stress from an overactive imagination. I’d consider giving them something that comforts them before sleeping, like a “monster repellent spray” that’s just filled with lavender and sleep-inducing essential oils!

        I totally agree….

        That’s a good idea. 🙂

      My 4 year old has very bad dreams as well. I have reduced the amount of screen time and watching tv. That has done the trick for the most part. Also, she picked out a nightlight and has “monster spray” and those things have seemed to help tremendously!
