  • It is really traumatic for a toddler and mom also, but he will be fine, the longer you stay there the longer he will take him to adjust to you leaving.

  • My son and I are attached to the hip, I put him in day care when he just turned 3 and he hated it at first would cry all day for me, but after about 3 weeks of horrible repeatitiveness, we both got used to it. I would cry after leaving him and he would cry all day for me, I felt so bad, but I know it was better for him to get to socialize more, and I work. Good Luck!

  • My son isn't in pre school , he does attend Awana Cubbies and I am also having a hard time leaving him, with people I don't know. You just never know who you can trust anymore and I am so scared something bad would happen to my child.

  • it makes the transition harder on him if you continue to stay that if you just go.

  • Don't stay with him. Leave. Yes it will be hard at first, but he will get used to it, and I am sure he will start having so much fun with his new friends.
