A couple of days ago, I started playing a small game with my almost 5-year-old girl, before she goes to sleep. The game is about imagining fictional stories happening with her. For example, I say "Let us imagine that you have a beautiful horse, and you go on a ride on that horse and see a little bird..." She enjoys this game so much that sometimes we have to imagine 5 or 6 stories.
Till now this seems OK, but what worries me is that she always tells me "Yes, yes, I want to buy a horse; yes, yes, I want a baby tiger." So she always tries to make or dreams of making the story a reality. Today she is waiting for me to play the imagination game before she goes to sleep, and I am wondering if I should continue with this game, or switch back to bedtime stories.
