My daughter is going through some major seperatioiin anxiety lately. She's fine as long as I am in the same room but when I leave she totally freaks out. I had to leave for school on Monday and was gone for 3 hours for class. She cried, screamed, refused to eat, made her self throw up, and was inconsolable the whole time.
I have no clue what I can do. I tell her when I'm leaving and give her a kiss. I don't drag out my leaving or come in and out. I leave her with people that she is familiar with. What can I do to help her get through her seperation anxiety?
