My granddaughter is 11 years old and has been having difficulties in school this year. She is very small for her age and very thin. She entered the Middle School in Sept. Her difficulties have escalated to the point where she does not want to go to school, makes up stories about having her homework done etc.
Today, she told her social work counselor that she has three imaginary friends, two girls and one boy who reside in her head. She can see the boy and he keeps her from sleeping at night. They tell her to do things she doesn't want to do. She can't hear the television because they talk to her.
I am worried about her and wonder if anyone can lead us in the right direction to get her help?
