Stopping a habit that has been a part of your life is hard-especially for young kids. Adults may have pills, and patches to help them get rid of an unwanted habit, but kids have their Sesame Street friends to help them with one of those important hurdles. Sesame Street will have a week of helping episodes geared toward getting children to get rid of the pacifier. November 4th will be “Put down the Pacifier Day” –yes there is a day for that. Elmo talks to kids about how the pacifier was needed when they were younger, but now that they are big kids they can let put down the pacifier for good.
