Kids are truly fascinating when we watch them. They seem to have a knack of keeping themselves busy. Did you ever have an imaginary friend whey you were younger? You might not remember, but your parents might.
Watching my 2.5 year old daughter keep herself busy on a broken phone just reminds me of kids and their imaginary friends. Why do kids invent imaginary friends. Well I am no physiologist, but possible reasons are loneliness, fear, security, or just plain kids stuff.
Our generation would talk to their imaginary friends in their bedroom, on the playground. Today my daughter is talking away to her imaginary friend on the dead telephone.
This got me thinking. What would tomorrows kids do with their imaginary friends. I suspect that they will Twitter or peep their imaginary friends. Have imaginary friends on Facebook. Perhaps have imaginary email friends.
Maybe you and I are already doing this when we chit chat with complete strangers who we assume are our friends.
Do you have an imaginary friend? Do your kids have imaginary friends?
