Teary Goodbyes

Lil Tip: Teary Goodbyes

Dropping your child off at daycare or school can be an emotional task. Your tot screams with outstretched arms begging you to come back while tears stream down your face. It's agonizing for both parent and child.

One way to ease into drop offs is to give your babe something special that they can keep with them all day. A blanket or a toy from home can sometimes provide them the comfort they need. For older children, try a picture of mom and dad. When they get sad, they can pull it out and be reminded that Mommy and Daddy are thinking of them even though they're not there. Soon enough, the kids will be leaping out of the car ready for a fun-filled day without you.
