  • I agree, don't give in. Yes it will be hard to listen to him scream and fuss about it, but it will be better for him in the long run. It can take anywhere from a day to three days for him to accept it. Believe me though, it'll be better for him if you stick to your choice and keep them out of the house. Just keep talking to him and explaining why he can't have them. And if he gets upset just console him.

  • You prepare for him to cry and carry on for about 3 days or so. You do NOT give in because if you do it will be even harder the next time you try to take them away. Sleeping time will be the hardest....but it will be over in a few days. DON'T GIVE IN!!!

  • agree with above totally.My daughter kept losing hers all over the house and at night time she would really kick up a fuss until i found one for her.In the end i got fed up with it and just said no more.After a few days she didn't mention or seem to need them anymore.She snuggled her bear as a comfort instead.don't panic!
