For the past year or so Lea and I have been trying to get Cooper to give up a sippy cup that he calls his “scratchy-cup.” We’ve tried to simply talk him in to giving it up, and when that didn’t work, we also tried bribing him (money always works for the other boys). No offer was good enough for Cooper and he continually refused to give up his scratchy-cup.
Cooper starts kindergarten next week and we know he can’t take his cup with him to school. So it finally happened, dad officially “misplaced” the scratchy-cup. It’s been a couple of weeks now and he’s doing better, but he still misses his lost scratchy-cup. There have only been a couple of times that he’s asked us to help him look for his scratchy-cup at bedtime.
Did you or your kids have a security blanket of some kind when they were little? When did they give it up?
