Sudden morning seperation at daycare
08-19-2013 08:30 PM
My son is 3 1/2 now and has been going to the same daycare since he was 1. It's been the same routine....drop him off in the morning when I go to work, and I pick him up at the end of the day (father is not in the picture so my son knows i am the one that only gets him). Well, for the last 3 weeks its been a crying, screaming mess when i drop him off. Every morning for the last two years, he gets a little sad when I drop him off but is excited to play with his friends all day. All of a sudden, it has becoming a tramatic event each morning and it breaks my heart. Is anyone else going through this? Is it the age? Does anyone have any tips to reassure him I come back every day (I have been constantly telling him and it's never changed over the last few years). There hasn't been any new daycare teachers or kids coming and going so it's not a change in atmosphere.
