So your daughter cries and clings until you agree to do whatever it is she is asking you to do? Right there is your problem. YOU ACTUALLY DO IT. She is getting what she wants through her behaviour, so why not behave that way? Stop giving in to her.

Thanks for your answer but you know what I have done those little play dates and she does go play and she's fines at the moment cause she's not shy or anything but the time when we're home that's when she's starts to do her crying that she want me to play with her I go do it but if like somebody calls me to do a favor she gets really and tell me why they can do it them self

It's happen to most kids with separation anxiety !which I believe it come from the bond that develop between mother and a child!although she is 5 she need to be involve in a lot of activities with out your presents take her to toddles group!although you there just take a sit and let her go play with the other kids!this is the time to do it!sometimes is good to encourage that while they still babes,leave her with a someone else than go have a phone on you she will cry but again she will learn that not only with mummy she is save but with other people as well.hope you will put that in practice,that's what I did to my little boy although he used to cry until I get back he is far better he is 13 months and he can play for himself,others in play group without looking for me:)hope it helps:
