What is the best way to say goodbye to my child when I drop him/her off at childcare?

The best way to say goodbye is in a positive, upbeat way (even if you feel sad). Give your child and big hug and tell him or her you'll be back. Don't linger over goodbyes; this makes the process of separating more difficult for both you and your child.
