You want him to work through the issue, emotion, attachment to the park, etc. Having him wear special pants would just confuse him and doesn't really address the real working through his emotions that he needs to learn from. However, it can still be a funny inside joke between you and your husband!
Part of it too is that I'm trying to get him to take everything a little less seriously. (hes sooo serious). But curious, because I'm considering any and every thing, what would be your approach to teaching a child (5)to work through the emotion?
