My 5 year old has recently started becoming very "clingy" to me. If I leave the room, she's right behind me. If I get out of sight she is a literal mess. She screams and panics. I only work part-time and my husband and I are almost always by her side. She's starting kindergarten in two days and I am getting nervous, almost sick over this transition.

Have you taken her to the kindergarten for a visit?? stay with her for a little while until she is settled and feels comfortable and hopefully made a few friends.
