babysitting woes Lock Rss

I am single and my little 3 yr old girl has never been seperated from me. i was hoping someone would have some tips on whats best to do when leaving children with other family members. every time i leave the room she cries and calls for me, which starts off a huge tanty. i want to start dating again soon and need to sort out what the best break away is so i dont upset her too much. please help!

At Day Care centres they tell you to say your good byes (telling them when you will be back, etc. ) and then go. Don't stall or waver as the kid learns that the carry on works. Apparently most of the kids that throw teary wobblies will calm as soon as the parent has left. It would be good for you to get in a few practice goes first, otherwise you won't really enjoy the date. . . Good Luck
