To return to childhood in dreams normally indicates a need for protection. It is the desire to return to the times when your mother cared for you and you didn't have to worry. This type of image is usually produced when you are afraid to face the unknown. The future causes insecurity. If you visit the neighborhood of your childhood, it may be able to help you recover an aspect of your past that remained unresolved, which you must now face in order to be at peace. In any case, childhood allows one to rediscover oneself.
