  • sounds like seperation anxiety. so leave the room every so often but come back in minutes. also, leave him at home wiht yoru mom or someone like that every so often. not a long time. just long enough for him to start to realize that even when you leave you will come back.
    also, since he does this when you go out, maybe he's just plain od scared. new place, scary people, no mommy...so try to maybe introduce him to some new people every day so he won't be scared so much?

  • I would try to find a relative that you trust and leave him with this person that he normally enjoys being with while at the park. Just for a couple of minutes at first and then for a little longer each time, but smile, he loves his mommy alot and doesn't want you away from him for a minute...good luck and God Bless
