Subject:Spirit Guide vs Imaginary Friend
Time:04:48 pm
My son (who is almost 8) has recently been describing someone to me that he is calling a Spirit Guide. Evidently, said guide follows my car on a skateboard, among other things. How can a parent tell the difference between a Guide and an imaginary friend? My son is a little old to develop an imaginary friend, but he's had a rough time the last couple of years. Does it matter which it is, as long as he feels better having this guide?

I would tend to agree with you and the others who have commented. It seems that this is a positive influence on him so it may not matter very much what you call it. I'm not certain how you would be able to tell the difference aside from the affects of this friend. Since it is positive, he may be right that it is a guide. Perhaps time will tell. It sounds like he is handling it all well, so I don't see the harm. Good luck!
