My three year old still freaks out when I leave the room without her,I still can't go to the bathroom without her.Is that normal for her to still do that?

Seperation anxiety is a hard thing to overcome, esp if she is with you all the time. But i'ts better for her development for learn to seperate. Try having her sit just inside the bathroom door while you go, and then after a few days move her into the door way, and then out of the room (with the door open) and then around the corner so she can't see you (still with the door open) and then close the door half way, and then open a crack, and then shut. then one day, she will be playing and you will go, and she won't even realise you are gone! Don' t make a big deal like "I am going now" but always tell her how well she did if she doesn't freak out. (I was a preschool teacher before I was a SAHM)
