Feel so sad for those kids and their parents. Mental illness is terrible.

I googled and seemed like there's not many posts on this topic.

When should parents be worried when our kids have imaginary friends?

My elder boy, now 4 yr old, started to have imaginary siblings after the arrival of my bb. Past 6mths now, he's still talking about them. At first, he claimed to have an elder Korkor, then Jiejie. Besides that, he also imagine he is some character or baby animal. He will invent his own language and claims the baby speaks this language. Should I be worried ?

Actually my gal is 8 and also has imaginary friends. I m not worried that she talks to her toys. I m more worried that she doesn't make friends in school. She is a loner. She takes lunch during recess alone. She worrys no one talks to her. She has friends for 1 year but that friend got to know new friend and they drifted apart. What should I do??!!!
