You are not a bad mum! Soe children have a problem in dealing with problem solving. When your son is playing is there a regular toy that makes him want to sit with you.Maybe he needs to be shown how to push a car or stack some lego. Just observe him for a while and see if you can solve what is making him run to you for support. He is very young and probably wants to do more than his little body is coordinated to do. He is using you as self assurance. You should be able to sort this one in a couple of days. He will grow in confidence soon and his crying days will be over!

never tell yourself that you are a bad mum, you little one might just have some sepration issues it pretty normal, my daughter waslike that with her dad. if he is safe where you leave him then just tell him that he is ok and tht mummy needs to do something and you will be right back, then go and do what you need to do and when you come back tell him "see mummy always comes back

hope this helps
