I’m currently writing a book and it involves the concept of having an ‘imaginary friend.’ As children, did anyone have an imaginary friend? What were they like (i.e. human, animal, etc.)? Did they have a name? Did you have more than one? When did this friend show up? (My research says imaginary friends are a way for children to cope with stressfull situations. For example, my little sister had an imaginary friend who was a baseball player that always chewed gum during her parents’ divorce). Also, does anyone have children or know children who have had imaginary friends? This is strictly for research, but I’m interested in hearing your stories. TIA.
