  • can you leave her with someone for a little bit this weekend? Then on monday just go, if she cries or clings it is best to just go. I watch children and most of the time they cry for a few minutes then they are fine!! I am sure she will be fine...she will get used to it and it will be good for her to play with others for an hour or so.
    Good luck, sweetie!!

  • make sure to bring a favorite toy or like lovey with her this way its easier on her. if there are not that many kids ask the babysitter in the room to distract her so she does not see you leave and sneak out. i am not sure if they have a room with a view like all see through or just a regular room with windows. but that is what i use to do when i babysat. as long as you distract they will be fine. she will cry its natural but she will be ok. and if you do it over and over again she will know that you will return. good luck.
