Regressing daughter

Hi girls,

Help! Went in to wake my 11yo daughter last week and there she is asleep with a pink paci in her mouth!! Later inspection of her room - 38 pacis and 5 baby bottles in her undies drawer.

Asked her about it - angry at her lack of privacy, since then she's wearing a diaper around the house, paci always in mouth except at mealtimes when she insists on drinking out of one of her bottles.

Ever heard of anything like this?

Thanks, love Sal

Put your foot down! NOT around the house and if she has them in her room she gets treated like a baby. NO goingout with friends NO watching tv. I also think you need to talk to someone about this. Her doctor. I also know that when step son was in school there was a stage when kids had pacifiers BUT It never went as far as your dd AND I DIDNT allow it in the house.

HUGS Get her some help

Are you pregnant? If you are that may have something to do with it, esp if she is an only child.

Otherwise, I agree with Denise. Talk to her doc about it and put your foot down. If she issues, she should be dealing with them in other manners at her age.

Good luck and ((((((Hugs)))))))
