Reply to Security blanket/stuffed animal

I highly recommend role playing. It makes a huge difference when they know what to expect. Get a stuffed animal and pretend that you and your child are the parents. Drop the stuffed animal off and reassure him and kiss him goodbye. You might even have some activities to pretend that the stuffed animal will do while at MDO and some other stuffed animals to represent the kids. Then, switch roles. You be the kiddo and let your child be mommy or daddy dropping you off so that you can model the behavior you hope your child will have. Then it’s their turn. Keep playing until it’s really familiar. This works for the doctor, dentist, play dates, etc. Hope it goes well! ❤️
