> I
> did say nice things about daycare, helped prepare her (as much as one can
> with a
> toddler), but I tried not to go over-board.
> 3. Be very confident with your child that this daycare thing is a good thing
> --
> although I was so anxious, I tried not to let Sophia see this.
>
> One way I did this is when it was getting time to drop her off at the
> daycare,
> after staying for about 20min with her and giving her two time warnings, I
> gave
> her a big hug and kiss, said "goodbye" and put her in the direct care of a
> teacher (for some attention and distraction), and left the room. I did not
> peak
> in the window, or come back when I heard her cry for the first time (although
> this was SO hard!). I waited in the waiting room for about 10 min, and then
> asked the Director to check on her in the room to be sure that she was OK
> while
> I stood right outside the door (where Sophia could not see me) -- and she was
> having a great time!!
>
> After that first day, she did not cry at all -- in fact, she LOVED daycare
> (she
> is now in Kindergarten, and still loves school).
>
> I do know that some other children had some separation anxiety, but the other
> parents who followed essentially the same routine had the same experience --
> after about a week, their children also grew to really like daycare.
>
> One thing I would avoid is "sneaking" out of the room while the child is
> distracted -- most children will notice and panic, which sets-up a bad
> routine.

> Anyway, these are my thoughts, and given that parenting is a very personal
> activity, my tips may or may not work for folks, but I hope that they are
> helpful.
