Practice Being Apart

Here’s a way to help your toddler practice being apart from you, even when you’re together, to help ease separation anxiety.

All parents have to leave the room where their toddler is sometimes, even if just to use the bathroom. Make sure your child is in a safe place and cannot wander into trouble.

Then, when you leave the room, be sure to tell her plainly and simply where you’re going and when you’ll be back. Keep in mind that a few minutes can seem like an eternity to a toddler.

Talk to your child or make other noises to let him know that you’re just around the corner and there’s no reason to fret.
