Always Say Good-Bye

It may be tempting to sneak out the back door while the tot is busy watching Elmo, but mommy's not doing anyone any favors with this method. Mama should say good-bye, give him a kiss, and tell him she'll be back soon. Try and keep it simple. If mom cries, so will the child. If she goes back for another kiss, so will he.
