Unclinging a Clingy Child
What does your child do when you drop them off at day care? Some kids’ natural curiosity kicks in and they wander away towards a peer or toy. Others are more cautious, preferring to stay by mom or dad until a teacher or caregiver invites them to join the fun. Then there’s the clingy child, the one who holds onto mom or dad for dear life and cry the second they leave. If your child falls into the last category, we’re here to help.
