Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety

Is your child having difficulty separating from mom and dad at school, daycare, or visiting the other parent in divorced situations? 

Tip: try a "transitional object" like a favorite blanket, stuffed animal, toy, or even a small keychain photo of mom and dad that goes with the child everywhere. 

For older kids... A small trinket with meaning or a photo they can keep in their pocket can be helpful.


Also remind kids you will always come back for them and when you do pick them up, remind them you came back just like you promised. Lots of hugs and kisses!
