A listener got in touch: 'I wondered if you could put this to your listeners and help me, my son who turned 6 in December has an imaginary friend and my husband and I disagree on how to manage it. He is talking about him and to him more and more in the last few weeks and on Monday he blamed him for spilled juice which he hadn’t done before...Have any of your listeners got children who had imaginary friends? Or any adults who had them at the same age, and can relate why it’s not a big deal? Or is 6 a little old for this level of reliance on an imaginary pal?' Ciara hears from listeners
