Quick Answers...

 

I have to leave my child in childcare while I work. Is there anything that can ease the pain of separation for my child? He always cries when I leave.

 

Special toys and blankets can be comforting during times of separation. Having a special toy or object close can help your child feel safer and more secure. He might also like having a picture of you to keep while you are gone.
