Dear Carol

I'm too old to sleep with a stuffed animal!

I sleep with a stuffed animal. How can I break apart from my comfort-giver?


Dear Age 13,

You’re not the only 13-year-old who still cuddles up with a stuffed bear. Sleeping with an animal for comfort is not like sucking your thumb or dragging a blankie around. Give yourself a break! Soon enough, you’ll probably change your ways without even trying. If you still want to break the habit, put your animal on a shelf or at the end of your bed instead of right next to you. Grab a pillow if you need something to hold.
