"Dear Carol: Am I too old to sleep with a stuffed animal?"
I'm 13 years old and I sleep with a stuffed animal. It feels a little to old to still do that, though. 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.
We want to hear from you! Go here to submit questions to Carol about every sticky sitch life throws at you.
