My 4 year old son has been with me since he was born, now that he's 4 I'm going back to work ive only been back 3 weeks and atlease 3 times a week I have to get off and go pick him up because he's showing out and screaming for me idk what go do and neither does the day care workers any suggestions lady's
I would start talking to him about all the great and exciting things that happen at daycare. Try to get him excited.
Is the daycare making you come get him? Or are you going because you feel badly that he is upset?
That aside I used to work in a nursery and these are some of things we would encourage parents to do if the child wasn't settling.
Morning routine. Be calm when you dress and feed him in the morning, and when you take him to nursery. Even if you are tense on the inside, try your best to appear relaxed.
Talk positively to your son. Tell him that he’ll be safe in the nursery, that the children and staff all like him and that he’ll have great fun there.
When you arrive at the nursery, make the separation from you loving but brief. Find a member of staff, give your son a quick kiss and hug goodbye, then hand him over.
Explain you’ll be back soon, as this will help calm him. You know you will pick him up from the nursery at home time but that fact may not be obvious to your son while he's distressed.
If you use these strategies consistently for three or four weeks, you’ll probably find that his daily tears become a thing of the past.
