Also (ontop of what the other moms have said) I would recommend that you never leave withought saying good bye. Alot of parents tend to sneak off adding to a childs anxiety that their parents could dissappear at any given moment. (thus leading to a clingy child) If your child isn't old enough to tell time but has a consistant day usually you could try saying things like " Mommy will be back after dinner, or nap time etc". Hope this helps.
