You may feel it, but don’t let on if you’re anxious too. It’s normal for children to experience separation anxiety at drop off for the first few weeks of school, so you have to be the strong one. You can stay for a bit, but then say you’re goodbyes and go. You’ll only make it worse if you stay too long. Remind your child you’ll be back. You can give them a note or a picture to put in their pocket or cubby to look at during the day. Then trust your child’s teacher to take it from there. It will get easier as the days go by.
