Is this a dumb idea? *poll* Kelly&Coralie 1 child; Rochester, NY, United States 56007 posts

Cora is totally excited for starting Kindergarten on sept 5th, but she has some anxiety problems.

She isn't allowed to bring her current "lovey: to school (It's a blanket she sleeps and cuddles with). She never brings it out of the house anyway.

I came across these cute necklaces in Target. It's a "BFF" type necklace pack with two cute owls.

I was gonna give her one to wear and I would wear the other one. So that she would have a little piece of me and we would be 'connected' by the necklaces at all times



Is this dumb or cute?

I mean, it sounds like she's attached to a blanket, not you, (not to sound mean, just honest) so I'm not sure that would work. But you said she doesn't bring it out of the house ever, so maybe it's just a comfort thing, in which case that could maybe be replaced by the comfort of wearing a necklace to match yours.

I am with the PP Clockwork Girl, though, if you bought it now to DEVELOP the bond, I can see how it COULD replace the blanket.



And I think this is an absolutely CUTE idea!

That is what I was going for. Just something to reassure her if she gets nervous.

She isn't totally attached to her blanket. It's just her favorite one.

Ohhk! My kids are crazy obsessed blankie freaks so I wasn't sure :lol:



I think, as mentioned by someone else, you should get them now and start building the attachment and sentiment of them, so that hopefully it'll be really reassuring by the time she's starting school.

Why would that be dumb?

No she isn't obsessed with it. Some nights she doesn't even want her blankey. Just when she gets upset. We sit and wrap it around her and she cools off.

I think the idea of giving it to her now is also a good idea. I think I'll do that
