The parents used a life-size replica cutout of the mom to help the child deal with his separation anxiety. The parents reportedly said the child was happy whenever the cutout was used when the mom was not in the room with the kid.
But is this a healthy way for a child to cope with separation anxiety?
Our parenting expert says she would not recommend doing this and says this type of technique will hinder a child from developing both independence and autonomy. She warns, "Please do not try this at home."
The Doctors also note that a small amount of separation anxiety is healthy in the development of toddlers. Instead of a cutout, Reena recommends using a security item like a blanket or a stuffed animal to help soothe a child when a parent is not with them.
