Daydreams occur when an individual during waking hours imagines enjoyable or exciting events or images. Most people daydream at some stage during their lives, but it tends to occur when someone is stressed or unhappy. Children and teenagers in particular may sometimes daydream a lot. This should not usually worry their parents or teachers unless their work suﬀers or it aﬀects the individual’s personal relationships.
In those circumstances professional advice should be sought from a doctor or counsellor.
