Hi mommies.. my daughter is 2 years 4 months old and she has started Nursery in June. She had a lot of separation anxiety in the beginning,but now she has adjusted to staying away from me for 3 hours and likes going to school. My problem is that she is getting attached to her teacher alot and is just holding her hand throughout,not leaving her side. Today the teacher told me that my daughter wasnt letting her go the restroom also (she does this to me at home)! I'm worried about this now... is it normal,has anybody gone through this?TIA

never before her sleep... don't talk about anything that may create any kind of stress in her mind just before her sleep. You can ask about it when she is in a casual mood... eating something or playing with toys etc Hey! I find this Parenting blog really interesting. I suggest you have a look too: https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/does-your-child-get-night-terrors-dealing-tips/2630?ptref=sa0l000u9e10212

Thank you Debashree... I agree with what you suggest,will try talking to my lo.. Another thing is the teacher told me to talk to her just before she sleeps about school like you have to go to school tmrw,listen to your teacher etc.. but you know what she will not sleep if I talk to her about school... she gets scared to fall asleep! Acc to the teacher,i shud speak to her at night only about this before sleeping... What are your views about this?

Hello Aabha, at the beginning your child was unsecured and was also under the anxiety of separation. But now.. when she is getting some motherly affection from her teacher who is giving her mental support resulting a sense of security also.. she started to enjoy her school days. But ..as her sense of security and liking towards the school highly depends on the cooperation and affection she is getting from her teacher... she is not allowing her to go out of her sight for a second also in fear of separation anxiety. In this case , talk to the teacher so that both she and you can talk to your child about it assuring her nothing will trouble her in the school. You can explain to her about the responsibility of a teacher is not taking care of a single child only.. etc
