Anxiety Issues

Tyler has started having Separation Anxiety. On Saturday, we took him to Liz's for a couple hours while we went to our Relief Society dinner, and he had a pretty good freak out. Last night we went out for dinner and left him with our friends the Fitzners. He cried the whole time pretty much, except while he was sleeping! How long does this last and is there anything I can do to help it?


  1. Welcome to the club. We've got one in nursery, Joe Wilde. He spends the first hour sitting on my knee screaming and crying. He's quiet for snack time and then he screams again till his parents come to get him. Good luck, it's fun eh!

  2. Hey Em- this must remind you of taking care of Madi for us. She screamed the whole time and wouldn't take a bottle. Ha ha! Seriously though, just keep leaving him in little chunks of time. Even if you just have to find a friend or neighbor who will do an hour at a time, then two, then three... I guess you're gonna have to since pretty soon he won't have much choice. Good luck!

    p.s. Happy belated birthday. I keep meaning to phone, but by the time I have a minute to breathe it's too late. I will try tomorrow!
