Do your children have any imaginary friends? Does it bother you? Or do you see it as a 'natural' part of childhood?

Gaby hasn't had any yet.. and I imagine that when/if she does get one, it won't be something that bothers me hugely - but I guess it could get to a point where it could become a bit obsessive, and BE cause for worry...

Its a totally natural part of childhood imho.

I had one in the third grade. My oldest son(6)had one when he was around 4. Little boy named Ryan who was scared of fire(makes us wonder if he was a spirit my son saw and chatted with cuz of the detail).

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

She has an imaginary.... dinosaur?

Well, he's a stuffed dino.. his name is Kota, we bought him for her birthday. And .. she thinks he's real, I dunno! LOL

Today she had a tea party with him.. and all of a sudden she's like "stop that, Kota!!!" and I asked her what he was doing.. and she said "he's making me SO mad, he just stole all of the tea, and then spilled the milk!!!" .. sometimes Kota trips her in the kitchen, and gives her a boo boo.. sometimes Kota is sick and needs to stay in bed... she... thinks he's real..... LOL

But, I think its normal. I hope
