Did you ever have an imaginary friend?
When I was a child, it seemed as if ALL of the children I knew had imaginary friends, at some point. They, of course, faded as we all grew up, so I'm not talking about hallucinations or delusions, haha!
I've noticed that I hardly ever meet children that have imaginary friends these days. Perhaps they're over-stimulated by everything toys and technology have to offer them now and "play mates" aren't as needed or even as wanted, I don't know. Some think people were bored "back then", and some think kids simply don't use their imagination as much as they used to. Some think kids still have them, but don't speak about them as freely as they used to.
Did you have an imaginary friend when you were a child? Did your friends have one? Do you notice it not being as frequent today? If you do, why do you think it's "something of the past"?... over-stimulation, lack of imaginative skills, or something else entirely? What are your thoughts?
What's Your Opinion?
