I work with children and when a child is going through separation issues at five there is a time when the parent needs to leave the child with a sitter or school on a regular bases to get the child to understand you are coming back. I know that when it comes to a kid and leaving and here them cry it breaks your heart but you have to let them self-regulate their own emotions because if you don't then they will grow up and not understand how to handle different bigger emotions. I can say with my god daughter Angel she cries whenever I leave her but she is slowly understanding that one I can not baby only her all the time and two that I am always going to come back. I hope this helps.
