If you dream about family, it may be a way for your mind to express feelings and concerns about your real family that you could not express in daily life. Some believe that this dream usually has nothing to do with your actual family members, but rather the male and female sides of your own personality or self. So in a dream, your father may represent your expressive and protective aspects, while your mother could stand for your receptive and nurturing side. If family members behave very differently in a dream than they do in real life, or if unexpected things happen when you are with your dream family, the dream is probably a way of releasing your anxiety about real life family issues.
Family members may appear in our dreams to symbolize an offering of security and support. To dream of parents demonstrates a longing for security and approval. Mothers typically personify love and support, while fathers reflect a desire for authority or protection. Members of the extended family usually appear in dreams either as themselves, highlighting positive or negative aspects in our relationship with them, or signifying various aspects of our own personality that may be a source of comfort or a challenge.
