Re: Separation Anxiety?

Marlene my heart goes out to you. Some kids are just clingy. I know I was as a child and I kind of just grew out of it. Just try to be as sensitive as possible, don't make her feel like a baby.

Have you spoken to the teacher to see if anything has happened? Bullying comes to mind, is there any evidence that she is afraid of someone. She might be afraid that the same thing might happen at her regular preschool too. Anyway try to find out if something has happened. It could be something else like she doesn't like the toilet, or nap time if they have that.

The other thing that might help is playdates outside of daycare. If she has a special friend there it might make it more appealing to go. Playdates can really establish great friendships for your child.

I really hope things improve and let us know what happens.
