Although separation anxiety fades as your child gets older, some of them continue to suffer, especially when it comes to preschool. For parents, this can be quite distressing. In some cases, it becomes a source of guilt, which increases your child’s anxiety. In this article, we’ll give you some tips that will help you support your anxious baby. Read on to learn more.
Help them get used to the Separation
First of all, you may want to train your child to get used to the separation. For example, you can first leave them with the healthcare professionals for a couple of hours. Gradually, you can increase the separation time.
Train your child
In most cases, tired and hungry babies are irritable and clingy. Likewise, children in a hurry are more prone to stress. You need to reevaluate your household routines if your child shows any signs of clinginess and anxiety. For example, if they suffer from anxiety, you will notice that they are not getting enough sleep. They may not have breakfast on time. Therefore, you may want to make some simple changes to your routines.
Follow a quick farewell ritual
The good thing about rituals is that they are personal and reassuring. You better have your own farewell ritual. It doesn’t have to be special. Giving a kiss or waving your hands may be more than enough. Alternatively, your child might also enjoy a low five or five. After saying goodbye, don’t look back and don’t stop. The idea is to avoid making a big deal out of it.
Allow them to bring a toy with them
If the daycare or preschool does not have strict restrictions, you can allow your child to bring their favorite toy or photo with them. This will provide your child with an extra layer of security as you will not be physically there.
Often, your confidence will have a big impact on your child’s confidence. Therefore, you may want to take a reassuring approach by dropping them off at school.
Involve a teacher or tutor
It is best that you discuss the matter with your child’s teacher. In addition to this, you can also discuss it with the caregiver. This will help you get them involved in the process, which will make your child feel comfortable. They will feel safer in the company of the teacher or caregiver.
Look for signs of sadness
It is important to keep in mind that separation anxiety is part of your child’s development. However, some children are more sensitive, which is why they experience more separation anxiety. This is why this type of situation requires the intervention of a professional. In some cases, a high level of anxiety can be a symptom of a disorder. Below are some of the symptoms that will help you decide if your child needs the help of a professor.
- The anxiety level is beyond the normal range
- Excessive agitation
- Avoid normal activities
- Chronic separation anxiety
In short, if you follow these steps, it will help you help your child reduce separation anxiety.
