my 3 year old daughter is afraid of being left alone day or night. She can be playing in her room and will yell, "MOM" ever 2 or 3 min., or run screaming down the hallway looking for me. If the door opens she screams and runs to make sure I am not leaving and she says "no go away."
If I put her in the car seat and perhaps have to run after something I forgot she screams and cries until I get back. Yesterday I ran back in the house for something and she screamed and cried, my husband who was outside came running to see what was wrong, she told him no go away and he waited there holding her hand until I got back.
I have never left her alone. She has stayed with her grandmother and gone to preschool and babysitters. I am so bewildered as to why she is so afraid of being abandoned.
