Aaron is a pretty well adjusted 2 year old. He moved from his cot to a big boy bed without a hitch. He started school with very few tantrums or clingy moments.
What he is not adjusting well to is the fact that daddy has moved out of the home office and into a new office. He is teary and clingy, he makes me call daddy each morning so he can speak to him and then sobs and begs daddy to come home.
He is suddenly very clingy with me, he cries and wails when I leave him at school in the morning, which he really wasn’t doing that often before and he gets very upset when I leave to go back to work after lunch.
He has also been sick the last few weeks and Im sure that he is still feeling out of sorts from that as well.
It just breaks my heart to see him sob when daddy goes off to work and when I go back to work after lunch.
What has your experience been with separation anxiety and with anxiety caused by big changes in your little ones life? Do you have any tips to help us ease through this transition?
