Transitions: Transitional Object

A transitional object can often help a child through the transitions process in a calm and timely manner. The video above describes a transitional object in more detail.

A transitional object is something that gives your child a sense of security when you are not able to be there. The best objects are lovies or something of yours that they know you love.

Some examples of effective transitional objects are as follows:

  • Stuffed animal
  • Blanket
  • A piece of your jewelry
  • Your scent
  • Business card
  • Key chain
