DD1 has always had some separation anxiety. DH was deployed for 8.5 months (Dec-Aug) and I would leave her once per week with a sitter and then leave her at Sunday school. She was doing fine with being dropped off at Sunday school and preschool for a couple of weeks, but then it went downhill. For the past month, she's been upset every time (she goes to preschool 2x per week and it's the same place as Sunday school).
She always has lots of fun at pre-school and Sunday school, but the dramatic fit she pitched this morning pushed me over the edge. We always talk in the car about how much fun she is going to have at school and the great things that she gets to do. I point out to her that I'm going to do boring stuff like clean, so she doesn't think that I'm having fun without her.
Anyone have any tips for a smooth drop off? I was thinking about doing a sticker chart and if she can get three stickers for a smooth drop off giving her a prize. Any help is greatly appreciated.
