Last night, after half an hour of trying to get a shrieking child to sleep, I grabbed his soft toy lion, and informed the kidlet that Lion needed to go to sleep.

Lion then snuggled down on the kidlet's chest, made a few snuffly noises, and then started snoring. I pointed out that Lion snored just like Daddy, but in lionese ("RAA-pheeeeew... RAA-pheeeeew..."), and asked the kidlet to stay very quiet, so we didn't wake him up again.

A few minutes later, Lion wanted to lie down in bed, but was a bit worried about lying there alone, so the kidlet was very friendly and lay down with him so that he wouldn't feel lonely...

Remind me how old the kidlet is, now?
Have done similar things with our sprogs- it's amazing how much they will BELIEVE that their toys are REAL, can eat, talk, move independently. Very handy, I've found, when it comes to fussy eating- if Rabbit goes "mmm, this is YUMMY, can I eat yours too?", then suddenly "No, it's miiiine!", and the food disappears. :-)

Sounds like a wonderful way of teaching him to care about others as well.

I approve this message :-)
