Ok I just started going back to school at night 3x a week from 5 to about 10. I have a few differnt babysitters but its not like he doesnt know them, he's known these people since he was born, hes been in their homes a million times... but as SOON as we get there now he turns around puts his arms up and screeeeeeeams. its the kind of upset that it sounds like hes in pain but hes really not. ill tell him before we get there whats going on, but he still cries hysterically for hours. i call and check on him within a half hour to an hour but hes still crying. Im losing babysitters because they cant handle how very upset he gets. please help any advice would be great thanks guys

maybe you could try just the one sitter? and you could try dropping him there earlier and sticking round for a bit? or maybe have the sitter come to your place so he stays in his own surroundings????
