My son is 4, his friend is 6. I get that kids make up imaginary friends, but this creeped me out. My ds pushed the boy and the kid said, "My imaginary friends told me that ds is trying to hurt me and them"...but that wasn't all he said...completely unprovoked he began telling that his imaginary friends talk back and forth in his head and tell him things...ummmmmm.....ummmmmmm.....holy shit!!!???? I am a little freaked out by this kid now....Wow...just Wow... I didn't even know what to say...I asked some questions about his imaginary friends, they had names and everything...I don't know, but that is a little more information than I needed....it's like, "I see dead people", lol

Maybe he's got schizophrenia?  Maybe he just has an active imagination?  IDK

 I've never heard of a 6 year old with schizophrenia.  It usually comes on around age 18.  You do need to mention this to his mom though.  He needs to be medically evaluated.  Any number of things (foods, medicines etc) could be making him delusional.  Most kids grow out of imaginary friends by about age 6-my dd's disappeared about age 5 (and she would have full on conversations with her).

Quoting sassyscorpio85:

It is not my ds, it was his 6 year old friend who was just over here for a playdate. If it was my son, he'd be at the Dr. already!

 Maybe talk to his parents and tell them he might need counseling, sounds like he is scitzophrenic (sp?).....Thats what I would do anyways!

Could be nothing. I would bring it up to his mother to see what she says though. Boys have very vivid and strange imaginations.

Having an imaginary friends is normal, but the way you explain it, I would think a mention to the parent is important.
