After the initial happiness of him being a big and brave boy going to playschool without crying, things started become a crying nightmare thereafter. Or maybe I should blame it on the long weekend holidays.
The first 3 days at playschool started off great. Then came the long weekend with 4 days off school. Then when we brought him to playschool on Wednesday, he decided to become a koala and cling-ed on my neck for dear life. And was crying bucketful of tears when I decided to just tear away from him and left him there in the arms of the teacher. When I went to fetch him, teacher commented that he cried on and off. I knew he did participated a little because he went home and sang a new song for me.
Today is Friday and it was the same. He was still a koala and he refused to let me go. Teacher said he cried every time he thinks of me. He didn't want any toys. Nothing could distract him. So I guess I need to stop him for a month or so. I don't want him to have a phobia. Will stop for awhile and then start again. I also noticed that he was more clingy to me at home.
So is this like a new phase of Separation Anxiety?
