Hello. I joined you because I feel soo sad and awful. My 2 years and 2 months toddler doesnt like daycare anymore. He was in since he was a year and really loved it and nver cried. The reason I take him there because he gets so bored at home and keeps crying to go out... he loves kids and so social... last month I stopped him for a month and now he cries when I take him there which breaks my heart..I feel so guilty..I want him to get used to it so it would be easier for me when I'll atart working... am I doing a bad thing? When I see him crying alone and gets so bored at home...I say at least he finds kids there to play.... what do you think?

I understand how that broken heart feels and I'm sorry you're going through this. When my daughter was about 2 and a half I put her in preschool and she would cry when I left her. I never let her see that I was upset, but as I left I would cry too. I asked other moms I knew for help and they encouraged me to be consistent in my behavior (not letting her know I was sad and maintaining a regular routine of going to preschool) and they said she would eventually adjust. My daughter did adjust and I'm sure your toddler will as well. My advice is simply to make sure your daycare facility has well-trained, friendly staff and also to be consistent in your routine of being positive about daycare and attending on a regular schedule. Don't feel guilty, sometimes parenting is physically hard work and sometimes it's emotionally hard work. I wish you and your little one many blessings.
