Many children love plush toys and cuddle them whenever they sleep, eat, or play outside.In this regard, many parents are very confused. Is this a manifestation of the child's lack of security?How do you keep kids away from plush toys?

In fact, this phenomenon is called 'soft object attachment' by psychologists, and it is a transitional manifestation of children's independent development.Treating plush toys as 'fantasy partners' can help them eliminate tension, so parents don't have to worry too much.

Psychologist Donald Wincott first studied the phenomenon of children's attachment to plush toys or objects, and believed that this phenomenon has transitional significance for children's psychological development.He named the soft objects that children cling to as 'transitional objects'.As children grow up and become more psychologically independent, they will naturally take this emotional support elsewhere.

A study by Richard Passman, a child psychologist at the University of Wisconsin in the United States, also found that this kind of 'soft object attachment' complex exists worldwide.For example, in the United States, Holland, New Zealand and other countries, the proportion of children with 'soft object attachment' complex is as high as three-fifths, while in South Korea it is one-fifth.It can be seen that it is normal for some children to be very attached to plush toys or soft things.In addition, it is worth noting that most of the children who love plush toys do not feel insecure and have a good parent-child relationship with their parents.

For those children who are extremely dependent on plush toys, how should parents guide them correctly?Here are three suggestions.First, don't force abstinence.Distract your child from a particular toy by finding alternatives that other children like.Second, cultivate children's other interests, guide them to explore new things, and gradually reduce their attachment to plush toys; third, encourage the child to say goodbye to the things he or she loves, and let him or her know that there are more and more Interesting things await them.

In fact, in addition to children, many adults also have a certain soft attachment complex. For example, they like to give plush toys as gifts, and they can’t resist seeing the cute dolls in the claw machine; for example, compared with other fabrics, some people prefer fluffy The same goes for pajamas, sofa cushions, and blankets.These items make one feel relaxed and comfortable, and may even reduce stress.
