Separation anxiety is a common and normal developmental phase that many young children experience, typically around the age of 1-2 years old, since the pandemic older children are also experiencing separation anxiety. It's a period where children become more aware of their surroundings and the people in their lives, and they may become fearful or anxious when separated from their primary caregivers.
As a parent, it's important to recognize that separation anxiety is a normal part of childhood and to approach it with empathy and understanding. Here are some tips for helping your child cope with separation anxiety:
Create a predictable routine: Having a consistent routine can help your child feel more secure and confident. Establish a morning routine that includes time for hugs and cuddles, and let your child know what to expect throughout the day.
Prepare your child for separation: Talk to your child about what will happen when you separate, and reassure them that you will be back. Try to avoid sneaking out or making a big fuss over goodbyes, as this can increase your child's anxiety.
Offer comfort items: A favorite toy, blanket, or stuffed animal can provide comfort and security for your child when you're not there.
Practice separation: Gradually increasing the amount of time your child spends away from you can help them become more comfortable with separation. Start with short periods of time and gradually increase the length of time as your child becomes more comfortable.
