I am fostering my God-son and he is having a little separation anxiety too. He doesn't want me to leave his room at night when he goes to bed. Although he doe not cling to me all day like your daughter. I suggest you talk to your doctor. You could also look up on Google or Yahoo ideas that would help with separation anxiety. Here's an idea for when you have to do dishes or laundry. Get a basket big enough to hold some toys and books. Get some new toys and books and put in the basket. Keep it put away and when you need to do laundry get it out for her. She could sit on the floor close by while you do laundry. Put the basket away again later.
