A dream in which you see a lion attacking a child means that the foundation of your life is at stake. The child represents you and your foundation, while the lion in this dream stands for troubles that shake the very core of your life.
Childhood in the dream represents your foundation since that is how we all start out in life. But this does not refer only to the foundation of your life, but also the foundation of anything such as your relationship, your job, your business, your career, etc.
The dream has many meanings depending on what you saw and who the child was. If it is your child, your brother’s child, your sister’s child or the child of anyone you know such as a friend, workmate, or classmate, the meaning will be different.
Here are some dreams in which you see a lion attacking or killing a child and what they might mean.
Lion attacking or killing your son dream meaning
A dream in which you see a lion attacking your son means that you are concerned about his well-being. If your son is young, the dream could manifest as a result of your fear of failing to provide for him and raise him right.
If your son is a teen or older, a dream about a lion attacking him could mean that you are worried about how he might turn out. It could be that you are worried about the company he is keeping, and worried about him picking up bad habits such as drug use promiscuity, etc.
A dream about a lion could also simply means that you are really afraid of losing the things that matter to you.
Lion attacking your daughter dream meaning
To see a lion attacking your daughter means that your daughter will be at risk of bad influence from her friends, something that can ruin her entire life. Since you are the one seeing this dream and are the parent, it will be important for you to monitor her and protect her from this threat.
A lion attacking your daughter in the dream could also mean that she is going through emotional trauma that may leave her scarred for life. Just like the attack of a lion can leave significant life-long scars, this trauma will also be hard for your daughter to shake off and it may affect her life’s trajectory. Again, it is important for you to be available in her life and protect her as much as you can.

Try to get close to the child if that is possible and see what might be going on and how you could help.
