My son is 7 and in the 2nd grade. He only ever talks about spiderman and Batman. All the time. He talks about nothin else. You can try to make him talk about something else but he will figure out a way to make it about spiderman. He does this at school to. He has gotten in trouble for only writing and talking about super heros. And according to the teacher he is annoying the other kids with it. She says he really has no friends in the class and she feels this is part of the reason. He has always been like this but it used to be Thomas the Train, then Buzz Lightyear and now it is Super Heros, especially Spiderman. It is like he is obsessed! Is this normal? what do I do about it?Answer Question

Yes, definitely sounds just a tad overboard. Does the school/school system have a psychologist you could talk to to get him evaluated?
"A child who avoids meaningful interaction with other kids, preferring to play exclusively with an invented friend, may be experiencing psychological distress. Imaginary friends eventually disappear, but if a child continues to focus only on an invented companion you might consider consulting a professional to determine if the child has any underlying concerns or anxieties" (Read rest of the article here: Aboutourkids.org)
