My daughter didn't meet her dad until she was almost 7, due to his heavy addiction problem. Months later, his side of the family stopped speaking to us due her dad. (They were around since I was pregnant) Months later, his addiction came back and he is not around anymore either. My daughter at times, wakes up crying from a bad dream about her dad. Sometimes it's memories that I remember happened, but when awake she can't remember the memories. In the morning, she doesn't remember having a dream even waking up. Is it normal for people/kids to not remember memories/dreams that really happened?
