We know that babies to enter REM sleep (dream state sleep) because we can see their eyes twitch as they sleep.

In fact they spend over half their time in REM sleep! Way more than adults.

But what do they dream about?

Neuroscientists believe REM sleep serves a completely different role in babes: It allows their brains to build pathways, and helps them develop languages.

But they lack the head space and the ability to imagine themselves as the heroes of baby adventures, or to dream of toys.

According to neuroscientists, even children at the age of 4 or 5 typically describe dreams that are static and plain, with no characters that move or act, few emotions and no memories. 

Vivid dreams start at age 7 and 8, when the child can become self-aware, and know that she/he is a person. 

In fact, the amount of self awareness— understanding that they would be the same person even if they had a different name, for example — strongly correlates with the amount of plot structure in that child’s dreams.

I think children have vivid dreams a lot earlier because I still remember a dream I had when I was 4 where I was strapped down to a mad scientist’s table and was about to be experimented on. 

Reading through the comments, a lot of people report back having vivid dreams at 4 or 5. Perhaps this theory is wrong after all. 

When I was 3-4 I had a lot of dreams where I could walk on walls and ceilings.

The fact is, like it or not, you still live a world where gender matters. Where gender controls not just the entire course of your life – but the lives of women all over the world. Every second, a child will be born female in a country where she will persecuted for this random biological occurrence for the rest of her life. So before you hold up your anti-Feminist placard proudly and smile at your own sense of empowerment, think not what Feminism can do for you, but what it can do for that one girl. She needs someone to stand up for her. That someone could be you.
