My Little Cricket’s Delay: Separation Anxiety

I feel so bad for my Little Cricket. His whole world has been thrown upside down. I have tried to add therapies in slowly, I have tried to minimize the stress on him. I have been present at every single one of his therapies so he knows he is being supported and isn’t abandoned. But even with all this my Little Cricket is starting to feel the pressure. He isnt sleeping as well, he doesn’t want to separate from me as easily and today he freaked out when I went to drop him off at preschool.

My Little Crickets first day dropping him off, where I actually left he did fine. He has always done really well when I have had to leave him with a sitter for a while. But today it was as if he knew I was going to leave him. I ended up having to stay for an hour to reassure him that everything was going to be ok.

I don’t know how much of this is because of all that is changing in his routine and schedule or how much is him maybe reaching a developmental milestone, albeit a bit delayed. This world of trying to raise my son is so hard.
