What should I do if my child announces she is not going to childcare because she doesn't want to be separated from me?
 

Allowing children to make choices about things within their control will help ease the power struggle. She can't decide whether or not she is going to childcare, but she can decide what to take along. Give her choices over smaller events: "Would you like to take your bear or doll to school today?" Would you rather wear your overalls or your jumper today?"
