My son does not have separation anxiety yet, but soon he might. My question is how do people handle it? I heard that you should almost (but not quite) cater to it. Let the child be clingy all he wants that way when he is ready to venture out again, he knows that if he ever gets scared then he can come right back. He will have more confidence in himself because he knows that if he ever need anything he can do it. Personally I agree. If I knew without a doubt that I could 100% come back to somebody and find comfort whenever I needed it then I would be more likely to venture further and feel safer. If I didn't know what would happen when I got uncomfortable then I wouldn't want to venture far and become independent. What would happen if I really needed someone and no one was there?
