Lucid Dreaming For Kids

My 6 year old has suffered from nightmares since she was about 2 and a half. Some of them are really frightening. Last week she dreamed that she slid down a slide and at the bottom was a steel trap that caught her. I've tried everything I can think of. Talking to her about any insecurities or trouble, playing soft music, whispering about butterflies and flowers until she falls asleep, dream catchers... lots of different stuff.

I used to have nightmares when I was little too. Every night until I was 12 or 13. When I eventually figured out that I could control what was happening in my dreams things started to change.

I've tried to explain lucid dreaming to her and suggest how she can do it but she doesn't understand how to make it happen. I'm wondering if she is just too young or if I haven't found the right words to explain what she needs to do.

Any help?
