  Final words on separation anxiety

Separation Anxiety - Do not Rush or prolong the parting

Your child reacts by crying inconsolably and pleading incessantly the moment you say good-bye - very hard on the parents! When you are leaving, give your child enough time to accept that you will not be around for some time. Do not rush nor drag your goodbyes. When you avoid saying your byes and dash out instead, you leave an upset child behind. Instead spend the time, say about 10-15 minutes, doing something he likes such as reading a book.

This time together serves the purpose of helping him feel secure and loved. Just like a curt good bye is no good, a prolonged one can be misleading. Make sure you have everything packed e.g. your cell phone, keys instead of coming back again for them. Once you are ready to leave, do not drag your byes as this will allow anxiety to creep in. Leaving with a cheery good bye and 'see you soon soon' drill will leave your child assured and comforted.
