If I were back in the fourth grade, I might just decide to spend my pocket money buying my parents a copy of Denyse Beaudet's book, because it says so many cool things kids need adults to know about dreams. One is that children know more about dreaming than most adults, so grown-ups should make a space to listen up. They should help kids to record their dreams in journals that will be a gift to the family decades later. If a kid is scared by something in the night, parents need to be primed to help, by offering immediate comfort, by checking whether the dream offers a clue to a problem that needs to be addressed, and sometimes by assisting the child to 'continue' the dream until a terror is confronted and resolved. The section on helping kids to select a dream talisman or night guardian is alone worth the price of the book, and I know it works. Clear, practical, and warm-hearted, alive with the voices of dreaming children, Dreamguider offers essential education for parents everywhere. --Robert Moss, author of Conscious Dreaming and The Three "Only" Things: Tapping the Power of Dreams, Coincidence, and Imagination
