Sometimes the dream itself can be the cause of tears, be it a nightmare or another dream. The sleeper perceives everything that happens in a dream as real events.In a dream, you can experience fear, grief, resentment, hatred, empathize with other heroes of the dream. Naturally, if the emotions are strong enough, a sleeping person may cry. If you woke up in the morning in tears, try to remember exactly what you dreamed about and caused your tears.

Try to calm him down with soft words and gently put him to bed. If the cases recur, it is necessary to consult a specialist.
