This is sooo my son. I can't even use the bathroom in peace. I heard, like everything else, that it is a phase. One thing that I have tried lately is to set the micro. timer. I set it for 10-15 minutes and then direct him to an activity that he can play on his own. I don't just say go play with your cars I say why don't you line all of your cars up and push them (or whatever). Then I do whatever I need to and I don't play with him until the timer goes off. If he wants to play, I just remind him that he needs to play by himself until he hears the beep. However, as soon as the timer goes off I do as I promised and I stop what I am doing and we play something. Then we play for a little while and I set it again. He seems to be doing a little better with the clingy. I hope to start extending the time a little soon. Just a thought!
