How do you handle clinging and crying during drop-off?

Your child will take their cues from you. If moms not worried they soon won't be. If mom lingers and wrings her hands you can bet little Johnny will be crying. Use a quick routine each morning and you teach your child that they can depend on you.

The staff at the daycare is good at assisting. I give her big hug and kisses give her hand to the teacher and just turn to walk away with "bye baby girl, have a great day"

First of all take some time of work to be with your child at school for a hour,letting him or her know that it is safe to be in a new environment. Play wiht you child in the daycare for that day,then the next day she will be asking to go back!Amazing

listen for a few minutes until our daughter stopped crying. As mom peaked our daughter would be down and playing. On breaks Mom would peek in and see baby playing WELL with her friends.

What mom does for the 2nd child is make bottle ready and give to our daughter as we travel to daycare. She still will be eatting as she arrives. Mom hands off to teacher to distract as mom slips out. Mom at first would stand by the closed door to

Our 2nd child began at 11mths and refused to speak to anyone. She even cries almost every drop off but stops. When she is being picked up she can't wait to leave but comes home VERY happy. Either she missed us or HAD a great day. I do love her class.

All the way into Pre-K she waived by, smiled at a few pictures and didn't look back at us as she was eager to start school.

I am kind of mixed with the replies because I agree with some and some makes sense and then children are different and you KNOW your child. Our 1st was GREAT with drop off's; she began at 10mths. Infact when it was time to come home she would hide.

I'm both a mom a childcare teacher. As a teacher the best parents were the ones who did not instill their insecurities in the child from the first day. It is best to establish a routine from day one that let's your child know you both will be okay!
