Separation Anxiety - Keep separations to a minimum

Some people feel that you should force your toddler to accept separations but this is not right when your child is going through a tough time adjusting to this change. You can tell when your little one is not prepared to manage the separations. During such periods, it is not appropriate to absent yourself for long periods and leave a wailing child behind in the care of someone else. If you have to leave for errands, leave your toddler with the other parent or a trusted caregiver like his grandmother, someone capable of handling your little one.

Keep your outings very brief for the time being. When your child is not ready to face his fear, then you should allow your child to deal with it in his own time. There will be days when your child is in the frame of mind to be left with someone else, nicely distracted, and then it pays to employ techniques that will allow you to make your exit in a pleasant manner. Going slow and easy is the way because you can't take the other extreme and stay glued to your toddler either.
