VLS: Have them draw pictures of the dreams. Once they see the pictures they can understand on a different level that the dream is a dream, and is not real. Other art forms are useful as they process the outer world through their dreams. Clay, paint, drawing, singing, and dancing are all helpful. With that being said, children are incredibly aware and their dreams may be based on “knowingness” that they have within.
