A dream in which you see a child falling means that you have a trait in you that is leading to different failures in your life. We all start out as children and that is when foundations are built, that is when we develop certain traits.
Therefore, seeing a child fall in a dream means one or more of your characteristics, a trait you developed when you were a child, is making it hard for you to move forward.
But it depends on whether you know the child who fell in your dream. If the child is your son or your daughter, the meaning can be different.
Here are some dreams in which you see a child (your son, daughter, niece, nephew, etc) falling and what they might mean.
Dream of a child falling off a roof and dying
To see a child fall off a roof and die in the dream means that there is a trait you developed as a child that you think is great and serves you well but it is actually working against you. Let’s say you have a trait of stubbornness in you, a trait you developed as a child.
You may think this is great because it means you never give up, but it could be harming you because some things are meant to be let go.
Dream about your son or daughter falling off a roof
A dream about your son or daughter falling off a roof and even dying or getting injured means that there is something you are doing for them that you think is right and helpful to them but that will end up being harmful to them.
The roof in the dream stands for something you think is protective and helpful to you or those around you, but seeing your son or daughter fall off it means that there is something you are doing for them that may end up ruining them even though you think it is great.
Dream of a child you do not know falling in a hole and dying
A dream in which you see a child falling into a hole and dying means that a project of yours could die because of something you did when that project was in its infancy when it was just starting.
It could be that while you were starting your business, your relationship, career, or any project, you made a mistake without knowing. That is why you saw a child falling into a hole.
The child you saw in the dream means the start of your relationship, your business, your career, or your project. The act of falling into a whole symbolizes a mistake you made without knowing.
This meaning, however, only applies if you do not know the child you see.
Dream about your son or daughter falling into a hole to death
A dream in which you see your own son or daughter falling into a hole and dying or being injured does not necessarily mean that your child will die. It simply means that there is something you are doing that might harm your son or daughter without you knowing.
That is the symbolism of falling into a hole. No one normally can fall into a hole they have seen. It is usually one that the person has not seen. The dream might be related to your child’s education, health, or general well-being.
That means you could be taking a certain approach to your child’s education thinking you are doing great when it is actually harmful.
Dream of a child falling out a window
A dream about a child falling out a window means that there is a risk that you think is not a risk at all. There is something you have been doing, a trait of yours that you took up as a child that you know is bad but you think you can handle it. However, things will soon go out of hand.
The child you saw stands for a long-term trait or habit that you picked up as a child. The act of falling out a window means that you are doing everything great in your job, your education, your relationship, etc, but there is just this one trait that may lead to your fall.
Dream about your son or daughter falling out a window
A dream about your son or daughter falling out a window means although you are doing everything for your child, there is just something important you are not fully doing. There is one tiny part of the child’s life that, if not taken care of, might result in catastrophic results.
The dream is a warning for you to take a good look at your son’s or daughter’s life and see what that little window of trouble might be.
Dream of a child falling downstairs to death or injury
A dream of a child you do not know (dream about your son or daughter below) failing downstairs and getting injured or dying means that you yourself have a trait or characteristic that you took on from a young age that is going to bring you down in one department of your life.
It could be that you have traits of vindictiveness, jealousy, laziness, depression, paranoia, insecurity, or such bad characteristics. These will, however, bring you down in one area of your life where you have been excelling.
Dream about your son or daughter falling downstairs to death or injury
A dream in which you see your son or daughter falling to death downstairs means that you are anxious about your child losing a certain standard he or she is accustomed to.
It could be that you and your partner are about to part ways and you are worried about what impact that change will have on your child. It could be that you are having financial troubles and you are worried about how that drop in standards might affect your son or daughter.
Dream of a child falling from a building
To see a child fall from a building means that there is a weakness in you that you took on from childhood that you have not been able to face. You have sort of hidden this in your own mental building but a time will come when this weakness might bring you down.
This meaning holds if you do not know the child you saw.
Dream of your son or daughter falling from a building
To see your daughter falling from a building symbolizes a sudden incident in your life that leads to a drop in your child’s well-being. The building stands for something you have build and kept for a long time in your life, something that brings you and your child some comfort.
Seeing your son and daughter fall from a building means that something you depend on in your life might shake and this might lead to a drop in your and your children’s quality of life.
