Help With Toddler Separation Anxiety

Dear Mom,

I try to leave my child and the minute I walk out of the room, she starts crying or screaming for me. Please help this gone crazy mom of how I can help my baby let me leave her for just a little bit. I think she has toddler separation anxiety but I just want to know how to overcome this.

Thanks,
Carol

Carol,

It is normal for your baby to be going through what they are going through. For nine months, they were attached to us 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We were their lifeline and they have to learn their independence from us. Their whole mentality knows they are sensing this whole new freedom from mom, but yet they have reservations about beginning new things. The mom can help teach them independence by taking baby steps and not trying to separate from them without building up the process. You may ask, what steps can we take?

Start out small. Let them play in the living room as you go to the next room (room needs to be in eye view) to do a certain task as folding clothes. Make sure you are keeping eye contact with them and reassuring that mom is right here. Speak in positive, upbeat words. The first time may not work, but just keep repeating yourself and do it over and over until they are fine with you being in the next room.

Stretch the time being gone. When dad or another caregiver comes home, go and take a shower or soak in a nice bubble bath. Reassure the child you will be back. Never sneak away from the child as this will leave a bad coping skill with her and think you are never coming back. Give it 15 or 20 minutes and show your presence to the baby. Hug her and let her know you missed her, but will always return when mommy goes. After you do this a few times and she gets used to the ide of you being gone for that short amount of time, try going to the store for a longer period of time. You can continue to stretch each trip until you feel comfortable with the time you are being gone, for example if you are trying to build up to a night out of town with your signifcant other.

By taking things slowing, it will help you and your child overcome toddler separation anxiety with much less tears, heartbreak and stress. The baby will continue to grow her independence from you and will soon love her new found freedom of having playtime with dad, grandma or grandpa, or other special friend.

Hang in there mom it will get better and know other moms are going through the same thing as you right now.

Fellow Mom,
Jen

 

Help Your Toddler Adjust to a New Bed

Your child has outgrown the crib and is ready for a new bed. But what type of bed should you buy and how will your child adjust to it?

Help Your Toddler Adjust to a New Bed

Your child has outgrown the crib and is ready for a new bed. But what type of bed should you buy and how will your child adjust to it?

To help children and parents with the transition, American Innerspring Manufacturers, a national nonprofit group dedicated to spreading information about sleep, has underwritten a printing of "Sleepy Creepy," a bedtime book geared toward toddlers who are leaving their cribs for "big-kid beds."

"We love 'Sleepy Creepy' because it helps with a transition that is difficult for so many parents," said Arthur Grehan, executive director of the American Innerspring Manufacturers. "Parents frequently contact us for information on the right types and sizes of beds for toddlers, so we know there's a ton of interest in the subject."

"'Sleepy Creepy' is delightful and just plain fun," Grehan added. "We suspect it'll rise to the top of the child's request list at bedtime."

AIM is making the offer in hopes that parents will give some real thought to the important transition from a crib to a bed with a real mattress. AIM is making copies of the book available to any parent who wants one in order to spark a discussion about the best way to approach this critical milestone in a child's life.

AIM's Web site, www.aim info.org, has additional information on the subject, including a tip sheet called "A Little Common Sense on Big Kid Beds."

 

Helping Toddlers Learn Through Make-Believe

Kayleen is serving tea and muffins to Oscar the Grouch while sporting a faded felt snowman hat. Not too far away, C.J. is holding a baby doll and gently taking her temperature with a big plastic thermometer. What do these two year olds have in common? They’re both engaging in the time-less activity of ‘make-believe’ play.

Kayleen is serving tea and muffins to Oscar the Grouch while sporting a faded felt snowman hat. Not too far away, C.J. is holding a baby doll and gently taking her temperature with a big plastic thermometer. What do these two year olds have in common? They’re both engaging in the time-less activity of ‘make-believe’ play.

Through make-believe, young children learn about themselves and the world around them. Little Babies, Toddlers, Kids & Childrens playing pat-a-cake are making believe. Depending on the age of the child, their role playing games will vary. Imaginative children don’t need fancy toys or equipment to pretend; they’re happy with a box and a toilet tissue roll. When they engage in pretend play with a variety of objects, they’re learning life skills that will help them as adults.

We’ve all watched little kids playing dress-up or ‘house.’ Children can create an imaginary world anywhere – when molding clay animals, when helping mom or dad match-up socks (sock puppets are the best after all.) If they’re this creative with just a sock, then think what they can do with special make-believe props.

Often parents feel that their children require expensive furniture and household equipment for pretend play. Remember the little boy with the refrigerator box in his back yard when you were a kid? Everyone showed up to help build limitless structures and the play would go on for hours, or until the box fell apart. Oh well, the hours spent cooperating together and using colorful imaginations were worth far more than any expensive jungle gym or playhouse.

What spurs the imagination of a toddler or preschool age child? What type of ‘props’ should parents provide to encourage make-believe even further than what kids will do naturally? Here are just a few ideas:

<LI>Dress-Up – hats, jewelry, scarves, shoes, dresses and shirts, purses or backpacks
<LI>Kitchen – lots of plastic bowls with lids, kid size broom/mop/dustpan, towels, spoons, measuring cups, pots and pans with lids
<LI>Family – blankets, pillow, both male and female baby dolls, old or toy cell phones, boxes of various sizes for baby beds
<LI>House – kid size table, cardboard boxes to serve as appliances, furniture or TV, full-length mirror

Playing make-believe encourages little children to play together, and is perfect for play groups and for helping shy children overcome anxiety. Little children have boundless ideas for creative play, but love it when parents or caregivers take part in the activity. Many times, imaginative play can help parents realize that their child is fearful or worried about something in particular. Helping them talk about their fears through make-believe will often lessen the child’s stress and bring you closer to your child.

Encourage your child’s imagination through make-believe with simple and inexpensive toys and props. Your refrigerator box may fall apart, but the fun of building it will last forever.
