My youngest is only 2yrs and 9 months and for the past 4 days know he keeps telling someone off forgetting in his way or hurting him when he is playing on his own. My daughter is 5 and still hasn't gone through the imaginary friend stage and my eldest was 6 when he got his and his friend keeps coming and going and he is know 8. I am just wonder if it is normal for a child so young to have an imaginary friend. He is also delaid in all area's of his develop stagers by anything from 6-12 months with his physical development being the worst area he is delayed in. He is under a ped, neurological professor and a neurological surgeon as he has epileptic episodes and a section of his brain is elongated and swollen which is coursing a very small amount but monitorable pressure on his spinal cord.
I am just concerned as I have never heard of child so young having an imaginary friend before. He doesn't like socialis with other people and is so much more happier if he is plays on his own until he asks someone to play with him but I do try my hardest with him to socialis with me, his father and his brother and sister if no one else.
