Hi all, Happy New Year! School begins for us on Wednesday (we were supposed to start last Thursday but Hurricane Irene had other plans for us). I got an email from a parent today saying that her little one has a lot of separation anxiety. What kinds of strategies, techniques or thoughts do you have for helping these kiddos. I am sure there will be tears on Wednesday and getting her into the classroom will be tricky. I do not have an aide, para, or any other adult helping to corral my kiddos into the room after our opening ceremonies. Like I said, any thoughts are greatly appreciated. I suggested to her mom that she can bring her in the day before school starts to see the room and meet me etc.
