I vote for firing the psychologist. FirstLock will give up Elmo when he wants to.

If Elmo wasn't causing problems, he could stay as long as he liked. If FirstLock had an "I like Elmo and those that don't like it can lump it." attitude, I'd let him drag the ratty thing wherever he liked. But that's not the case, and FirstLock really can't process who is worth paying attention to yet, and he is very sensitive to criticism from anyone. I've gotten a lot of consistent advice that carrying around Elmo isn't good for FirstLock. Not that it isn't good in general. Social interactions, especially new ones, are hard for FirstLock and Elmo makes them harder. If Elmo was making things easier for FirstLock that would be one thing, but sadly he is not.
