To dream of your parents generally represents shelter, love and power.

If you are struggling to put or indeed keep a roof over your head, you might be thinking back to a time when it was a given freely to you by the people who raised you.

Do you want someone else to show you the same level of love your parents gave to one another? If you are single- a partner perhaps?

It’s possible you are missing their guidance in your life if you are of an age where you’re the one with the power and are unsure what to do with it.

Perhaps you are worried about your own parents in your waking hours and this is finding its way into your dreams.

Alternatively, it can mean that the female and male aspects of your personality are merging and complimenting one another.

If your parents died in your dream, you may be enduring some big changes in your life at present. It will take some time to adjust- but you have the strength to get through even if it doesn’t feel like it right now.

Perhaps your relationship with your parents has evolved into something new. This could be a positive or a negative. It's possible you have a strong bond now you are older and consider them to be parents as well as friends, however you may feel more distant than ever following a recent argument or in the light of new information. 

Have you shared something with them lately that they were accepting of? Have you leaned something new about them after all these years? Has their reaction to something shocked you? Whatever it might be- your relationship has been altered as a result.

To dream about your friend’s parents suggests that you want your parents to be more like them or that you want to parent like them in you have your own kids now. But only if they were good people- to dislike someone else’s parents in a dream could be your subconscious telling you to cherish the family you have if you have been taking them for granted lately. Along the same vein, the dream could be warning you not to parent in the same way. 

To see your parents together potentially means that you have an important decision to make. One that might or might not involve the whole family.
