...take your child's "security object" away? Some kids have blankets or PJs but my daughter has a brown stuffed animal doggy that she carries around EVERYWHERE and will not sleep without. At what age would you take it away?

I say you should choose your battles wisely. Unless it is causing physical harm (like binkies do) I see no point in ever taking it away. When she gets older and it gets more raggedy looking I would just suggest that she leave it at home or in the car on long trips.

I haven't taken my either of my son's blankies away. I don't think that I will. I will however at a point limit where they take them. My 3 1/2 yo already keeps his blanket on his bed at all times. He doesn't take it anywhere any more, his choice. My 21 month old takes his (he calls it "BB") EVERYWHERE. Probably this next summer I will start limiting BB to the house only, no more taking it everywhere with us. But, actually taking away their security blankets, no I won't do that.
