Does anyone have any tips/ideas on how to deal with separation anxiety? Preston is suffering terribly with it.
The first day he went to the babysitter's he was fine. I don't think he realized I was leaving him there for a few hours. Since then, it has progressively gotten worse. Yesterday morning for instance, it took me 15 minutes to put on a pair of pants on Preston. He kicked and screamed the whole time.
He gets so worked up and hyperventilates that he makes himself puke. Once he's there, he's okay. I make it a quick drop off. She gets his coat and shoes off and quickly whisks him off to do a craft or have a snack so it takes his mind off it. She says he has some sad moments like when the other kids are having a nap and he just has quiet time cause he doesn't nap.
I feel bad and hate seeing him like this. It's causing arguments with my hubby. But he needs to get used to doing this. If he was going because I had a job, he would have no choice but to go. And he needs to get used to being dropped off cause he goes to Kindergarten in September.
If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.
