Any tips on a clingy toddler?

My son will be two in less than a month, and he will not leave my side. He has never been a super cuddly child, but for the last few weeks, he seems to constantly be holding on to me. I'm a single, working mom going to school. It's hard to have him clinging to me at all times. Any tips?

  • 2 is a hard age fopr both moms and littles... maybe hes going thru a phase. dont put to much into it, otherwise it will tend to stay for longer. feeding into unwanted behaviors never seems to help. play dates where he is forced to see other kids behaving in different mannors. then maybe he will live a little, so can u :)
