Imaginary Friends

Many children have imaginary friends and most parents just ignore or humour their children when they talk about their invisable playmates, but according to a study from the Institute of Education, "The invisible pals offer companionship and emotional support, aid creativity, boost self esteem and create a 'sense of self'. Parents should not worry even if their child dreams up multiple companions, it said. "Imaginative children will create imaginary friends,' said Karen Majors, an educational psychologist at the institute who is carrying out the research. 'Companionship is a big part of it. They can be a way of boosting self-confidence."

We as parents all want that for our children!!!

Happy Parenting
