Our Babysitter is simple wonderful. But I always worry about my son freaking out when I leave. My son crys and screams when I drop him off chases me to the door it is a huge fight every time I drop him & his sister off...

Today she stopped by the house & their faces lit right up like they were watching fireworks. My son started blowing kisses and yelling wuv you! So why does he freak out when I drop them off??? He is two I also only work three days a week so why does he freak out. Anyone know?

It could be anxiety over knowing that you are leaving. A lot of kids figure out pretty early on that when they see a certain person then they know that their mother or father or leaving. My little girl does this but is happy and chatting within five minutes that I am gone. :)

My son is 4 and has seperation anxiety so I know what you mean. I know my sitter is great he can't wait for her to come then bang he is crying making me feel guilty.
