Your Child May Now Play With An Imaginary Friend

This is the age when your little one will develop imaginary friends. He would be sharing all his feelings and anticipations with this new friend. Most of the times he will be lost in his own sweet world of play, sharing and enjoying his life.

What you need to know

It is all normal for your kid to be friends with an imaginary companion who happens to be his favorite toy or his favorite cartoon character. This usually happens with the first child as your child wants to play all the time with someone and the role of this someone is played by an invisible friend. This invisible friend is of crucial importance as your child will prefer playing indoor games with him.

Your Child May Now Play With An Imaginary Friend

Your kiddo wants his presence all the time so much so that sharing bed, lunches and dinners become common to him. This pretend friend will become your kid's confidant and his fears, achievements and his hesitations are all a secret with this friend. What you need to understand here is, you as a parent do not indulge yourself with this imaginary play as it may create a sense of dissatisfaction and discrimination in your kid.

The comparison will further abstain him to become more social and prevent him to mingle with kids of his age. The moment your child is being sent to a school, this friend will slowly fade away as the true actual buddies will take his place. To strengthen the friendship bond further plays, invitations to homes will be common activities and your child will bloom in the nectar of sweet friendship.
