“I Have to Leave Now!” Solving Separation Anxiety

Boy cries in mother's arms. Maybe they have to part.

Listen in as Parent Coach Madeleine Winter and Trainee Instructor Rebecca Nowlen talk about Hand in Hand’s practical approach to solving separation anxiety.

Separations are inevitable, and all children have feelings about being away from you.  Sometimes these are easy to manage, and sometimes they make parting for short times difficult and stressful.

The good news is that you can make a plan for resolving your child’s feelings about separation. You can fill their cup of connection, build safety, and listen to their feelings in a way that will build your child’s confidence and resilience.  They will be able to be happy to leave you and be able to fully enjoy themselves while you are away, knowing you will return.
