2. Prepare them for Departure
Parents magazine said instead of downplaying the fact you’re leaving for a trip or even for a day at work, you can ease the anxiety of your child by advising them ahead of time you won’t be with them on a certain day.
The magazine said while it’s tempting to skip an explanation of why you’re disappearing, telling them where you’ll be in a positive tone will help put them at ease. If you’re leaving them with a caregiver other than your partner, you can build their excitement by saying something like, “You and (caregiver) are going to have so much fun!”
