My soon to be 7 year old daughter had to be left with her grandparents as she had gastro, and I had to attend my Best friends 40th Birthday.
She was very upset at the time of me leaving her.
I now think she has separation anxiety as she will not stay or go anywhere without me, no more sleepovers, even just day visits she is very hesitant to go and starts crying that she wants to stay with me.
I’m at the stage now that I’m not sure to keep letting her come with me or pushing the issue of her staying with others.. Lucky my boss allows me to take her to work with me during the holidays.
Before the weekend I had to leave her she was very happy to go to grand parents and friends for sleep overs.
