Help! Toddler Anxieties
I nanny 23 month old twins (boy and girl). I have been working with them for 5 weeks now and they have been wonderful! For the past two weeks the boy has become more clingy, wanting to be held often (his mother has noticed this as well). Within the past two days he has displayed separation anxiety when his mom or dad try to leave for work in the morning, though calms down within a few seconds after they have left. He has also been resisting naptime these past couple days where before he would gladly lay down to sleep. Is this separation anxiety? Is there anything I or the parents can do to ease his anxieties?
