9 Meanings When You Dream of Losing a Child 1

Dreaming of Losing a Child

1. Reflect Your Daily Actions

A dream about losing your child shows that you should look at your actions and behavior in waking life. It’s not that your acts are good. The spirits tell you that there are things you did in your life which aren’t nice.

Here, the key detail you’ll recall from the dream is that you’ve lost your child. The child in the picture represents you. Well, it means that you have lost some good habits that were important to your outlook.

Also, these acts are against your life principles. They’ll destroy you and prevent you from attaining your goals. So, the dream has come to warn you to stop doing those things.

You should always ensure you protect your dignity in society. It will keep you safe from more shame. Once you check what wrong you did, please correct it.

2. Go Back to Your Inner Child

This dream is also a reminder to look at the child inside you. Also, here the only key detail you’ll remember is that you are losing your child. The child here represents your childhood past or your inner child.

It means that some child feelings are keeping you away from reaching your life goals. So, you should leave those emotions behind and allow yourself to grow.

Sometimes, it may be that you’ve lost your pure self because of the many fears coming from your inner child. It would be nice to make that inner child better by removing the fears.

Also, the dreams come to remind you that you should leave some of the old beliefs behind. These things make you lag from becoming a better person in life. The acts keep bringing conflicts in your life.

Your inner child should allow you to be playful and optimistic in your things in life. It’s the best way to help you overcome many fears in life. Also, it’s from this point that you’ll grow and become a better person.

3. Stop Neglecting Your Child

If you see this dream and have a child in real life, it means you are neglecting that child or children. It might fail to look like reality, but you should give more and better care to your children.

Sometimes, it might be that you care more about other children and leave one child behind. The spirits now tell you to give equal care to all your children. Otherwise, you’ll lose the good qualities in that child.

Remember, if the dream keeps repeating itself, it shows that you have a poor relationship with your child. It’s time you create more time with your child to make love between you two grow.

Go deeper into the innocent’s kid’s world. Help them manage their feelings and emotions.

You might see this dream when pregnant. Well, it’s right if it scares you. It means that you should care more about the child in you.

4. You’ve Lost a Lifetime Chance

Sometimes, the dream might mean you’ve lost a big chance to make your life better or meet your goals. Well, in this picture, the child represents that vital thing that you’ve lost in your life.

It may be that you’ve lost the chance to get a job promotion. Sometimes, it might you’ve failed to get that opportunity to make your business grow.

Also, besides losing a chance, it shows that you’ve lost the courage to meet some of your goals. Remember, it’s not easy to become successful without courage and believing in yourself.

The dream also means that the things you’ve failed to achieve in the past have made you fail to move ahead. So, you should leave those things behind and focus more on the future.

Mostly, this meaning will relate more to you when you don’t have a child in real life. It shows that you have lost a lifetime chance of making your relationships better.

5. You Fear Responsibilities

A dream of losing your child shows that you are running away from your responsibilities. It might be the duties as a parent or some roles given to you by someone else.

Here, the child represents what is expected of you in society. In every family, the child is the responsibility of a parent.

The spirits tell you that you aren’t sure of your decisions in life. Well, it’s because you fear doing some of your life responsibilities.

Also, since you fear doing what’s expected, you fear exploring more life opportunities. Sometimes, the fear of these roles is a lack of confidence.

If you are pregnant, it shows that you fear the roles that will be expected of you when you become a mother. It would help if you feared to take up the new project ahead of you.

You might also have this dream, yet you don’t have a child or expect one. It also means that you are shying away from what you are supposed to do. You’ve lost control and power in your waking life.

6. Tough Times are Coming

When you have such a dream, you should prepare yourself because you are about to have it rough in life. Well, in life, when one loses a child, it’s never a happy moment.

In the coming days, you’ll go through some painful experiences. These things will make you lack ideas of what to do next in life.

Remember, the image of your losing the child also shows losing the strength to face many challenges in life. So, they’ll end up overpowering you.

Sometimes, it may be that you have pushed hard to overcome any problem. But all your problems have hit a dead end. So, the tough times are still coming your way.

Also, the dream shows that these problems have taken much energy from you. They’ll keep coming, and you’ll lose your confidence in life.

But as Barack Obama once said, the future days reward people who keep pressing on. So, don’t always feel sorry for yourself. But instead, dust yourself and move on in life.

7. You are Lost in the Social Life

Sometimes, dreaming about losing a child shows a picture about your social life. You’ll see that you’ve lost your child to the crowd. It means that you have lost your ability to interact well with people.

Whenever you spend time with your peers or people around you, you feel insecure. This issue might be because of your life problems taking your inner peace away.

In the dream, that crowd is many people who have come together for a particular purpose. Losing that child in the crowd shows that you are lost while pleasing people. So, you’ll have to find ways to make your social life better.

8. You’ve Lost Your Humble Character

This dream might also mean that you have lost that soft and humble character in you. Here, you’ll dream that you’ve lost a daughter. Also, you can dream that another person has lost a female child.

Well, female children show the act of goodness and care in you. A girl in dreams also shows new opportunities to grow. So, losing a girl child in your dream shows that you have lost touch with your inner self of being innocent and playful.

It’s always lovely to be serious in life. It helps you achieve most of your targets and remain focused. Having some qualities in life make you a better person.

So, the dream tells you to sit back and examine yourself more. This move will help you regain that humble being that was once in you.

9. You’ve Lost Your Toughness in Life

Losing a child in your dream can show that you’ve lost the toughness in you in real life. In this dream, you see that you or someone else has lost a boy.

Remember, a young boy shows your courage to help you meet your goals and success. So, seeing such a dream tells you that you’ve lost the ability to meet your life targets.

This problem may have as a result of many problems. But now you lack any clue of how to overcome these issues.

The dream may also show that you’ve lost your financial muscles. It doesn’t mean that you should lose hope.

There’s always room for a comeback in your life. You can gain courage and become tough again.


Yes, many times, you dream about your child. But any dream about losing your child will always be a nightmare. The spirits are always trying to communicate to you about the wrongdoings in your life.

Sometimes, the dream will come to tell you that things are heading in the wrong direction in your life. But the meanings also come with hope. They push you to become a better person in society.

So, have you had such a dream about your child in recent times? Did these meanings relate to what is happening in your real life? Please feel free to share your thoughts with us.

  2. Very interesting. I see 1-9 in my life. Yeeessh 🫣 every number, scary. Only 1 day at a time am I able to heed the advice

  3. I’ve been dreaming of being late to picking up my daughter & son from elementary school. I can’t seem to find them!!! This has been going on for a couple of years. Just last night I dreamt of going to an amusement park and right away I lost my daughter first then I lost my son as well. I kept looking for them and can’t seem to find them.

    • That happened to me, last night was the second dream I had of loosing my middle child at school. I’ve had the dream where you are late to picking up your kid like maybe 5 times. I think it’s cuz I always worry about being late to get them and it effects my dreams. Idk it’s very weird and it’s always my middle child.

  4. but my dream wasn’t only losing my child. I dreamt that all my kids were gone I could not find them. There was no one on this earth that I could find. Then for some reason I went underground and lots of weird people down there not even sure if they were human. then I went into another room and all my kids were cut up in pieces in jars. I woke up screaming. So, what does that mean?

  5. I had a dream that my daughter was missing & when she was really young it actually happened in real life, I woke up on the verge of almost crying.

  6. I dreamt about finding a lost child, boy, in a Mall and went to security with the child. While there another lady bought an older child to security and they both new each other as brothers so security set out looking for their mother. My dream went on as I was riding a bus with some girlfriends traveling with my son as well and getting off the bus I couldn’t find my son…went missing in the crowd. I was looking for him in the crowd and then I woke up! The thing is my son is an adult with his own family but in the dream he was a child about 6/7… I felt it was my son because I was disturbed or possibly my grandson who is in reality a teenager. It was some child close to me! In reality I did loose my son some years ago in a Mall and security saw me searching and crying, panicking and asked me what was wrong. I explained I lost my son and he took me to an office and there was my son at that very same age looking up at me… not crying but worried! I was the one crying. I have never dreamt of that incident until now. Strange as this was years ago and the similarities in the dream are baffling!

  7. I had a dream my 21 yr old son was missing. I was on the bus going home to drive my car there but tried to ring him to get his gps location. In the dream for some strange reason I never rang him even though I was dying too. Some other guy who’s son was with mine said he was out looking for them but he was lost too, but more in the sense of lost in trying to find them. Then my trainers were not on my feet and i found them but someone else told me someone else had been wearing them.
