How early should I teach my child to
Begin teaching goodbyes during infancy so that you set a positive pattern for the future. The fact that your child may not understand your words is unimportant. Tell your child that you are leaving and will be back, put him or her in the arms of the care provider, and kiss and wave goodbye.
