Expanding the search

If you still can’t find the missing teddy bear, try reporting it to your local community. This may help alert people who may have seen it and returned it to you.

Consider replacement

In the worst case scenario, if the teddy bear cannot be found, explain to your child that sometimes things go missing and that it is okay to replace them.

Be a good listener and compassionate

It is important that your child knows that you understand and sympathize with his or her loss. Provide emotional support throughout the process, no matter what solution is chosen. This will help your child feel secure in the knowledge that he or she is being cared for.

What are some tips to prevent this from happening again?

  • Encourage your child to stay organized and tidy by setting aside a place for their teddy bear.
  • Expand the conversation about the importance of taking care of their stuff.
  • Consider labeling all of your child’s things, such as clothes and toys.
  • Encourage them to keep track of the things they own so that nothing is forgotten or misplaced.
  • Consider buying a duplicate stuffed toy in case the original goes missing.
