Is anyone dealing with or have dealt with separation anxiety? If so please give advice about how to ease separation anxiety. I have a 2 yr old toddler she will soon be 3 in Aug and no matter when and where i go she goes into this stage. I do not leave her with strangers only family members she has known her whole life. She will be all ready to go see them and spend time all smiles. I will tell her the day before she goes and remind her while we are in the car that that is where we are going and i will be leaving and that is fine with her as well- but as soon as we get there and i say "I am going bye-bye will be back soon-give me kisses" she freaks and clings onto my leg. Will lay out on floor and kick and scream. Nothing distracts her she screams really loud. I understand she is spoiled my doing but this is outrageous and wondering how long this phase lasts or what i need to do to cut it.
