Dreaming of a father symbolizes authority and discipline, while a dream of a mother symbolize love and protection – depending, of course, on how the dreamer felt about his or her parents.

If the parents are still living, perhaps you need to contact them.

If the parents have passed on, then they could be bringing you an important message. Dreaming of one’s parents is perhaps the most subjective dream symbol of all.

The dreamer’s relationships with his or her parents, as well as the other symbols in the dream, need to be considered before a workable interpretation can be found.
