Separation Anxiety

child attachment situation gender

Separation anxiety is characterized by an intense emotional reaction on the part of a young child to the departure of a person with whom the child has established an emotional attachment. Signs of separation anxiety, such as crying when the caregiver prepares to leave, typically emerge around six to eight months when infants have formed a representation of their caretakers as reliable providers of comfort and security. Distress reactions peak around fourteen to twenty months at which time toddlers may follow or cling to caregivers to prevent their departure. Although most children show signs of separation anxiety, the intensity of an individual child's distress varies depending on: (1) the availability of another caregiver with whom the child has a close bond; (2) the familiarity of the situation; (3) previous experience with the caretaker leaving; and (4) the child's sense of control over the situation. Gradually, separation anxiety becomes less intense and less frequent, diminishing by age two.

There's not a lot of things you should be worried about as long as you talk to your child constantly and get him or her to understood the situation. Your child should know why he/she is going to school and why there is nothing to worry about. Sooner or later this anxiety will go away.

There is really nothing to worry about if your child gets a little shaky about the fact that he will be left alone at school. That's a normal thing all children face and they will soon get over it in just a matter of days. Your role as a parent is to talk to him and explain why all of this is necessary for his future.

Before you leave your child to the care of any learning institution, you should try to talk about it with him or her first. This is so that the child would understand the purpose as to why he or she must go to school. This anxiety will eventually wear down in the next few days.

The things I did to help my child get over his anxiety on the first day of school is already talk to him in advance of why he will be going there in the first place. First days will always be very shaky and you just have to be there for your child to support him. In just a few days, he will become accustomed to his environment and all his anxieties will go away.

Separation anxiety is something that all children will go through at some point in their lives and there is nothing you should be concerned about. Sooner or later your child will get over it naturally and you could be surprised by the results. Just let your child do what he has to do.

Virtually every parent will experience this kind of syndrome on their child one way or another, but I don't think this should cause any concern. As a mother, it gives me a little pain to leave my first child at school, but we really have to make this hard decision for their own good. It will all change before you know it.

I think separation anxiety only happens if you did not teach your child properly. Spoiled children are the ones who are subject to this problem most of the time. It is important that you teach your kids the value of relationships at an early age.

This is just a normal thing for toddlers and I don't think there is a need for concern on this matter. Every child will outgrow this anxiety over time and before you know it he has taken control over it. Let the child be and let his emotions show.

Whenever the time comes when you need to bring your child to school, you should have already accustomed him/her to going there. You should talk about it with your child and say that it is an important part of their lives. Of course you can stay with your child in the first few weeks until he/she gets accustomed to the school environment. This way you lessen the stress on their part.

I am about to send my first child to school next week and I am worried that he might have this problem. What I was planning to do was to explain to him in the best way I can why school is important and fun at the same time. I may also stay with him there for a couple of days.

In my opinion, separation anxiety is just a normal emotion that any young child goes through. While there may be ways to help minimize this type of anxiety, we really don't have to be bothered too much about it. What's important is that the caregiver must understand the needs of the child and make sure they are properly attended to.

Children have a strong emotional bond with their mother or someone else to whom they spend more time. If there is a situation of separation between the child and his mother he cannot handle that situation. When I was a child, me also experienced the same problems. This is normal in all children.
