Personally, I discourage imaginary friends. I just dont think it is a healthy practice and maybe I have watched too many movies . . . but that is how I feel about it. Personal conviction. I think that parents have to make their own choices to raise up their children in the way they should go . . if we cause one of these little ones to sin . . . We must teach our children at an early age what is right and wrong and what pleases the Lord.
