Little Girl Cries After Dad Forgets Their 'Goodbye Ritual'

Take a look at this little girl's heartbreaking reaction when her dad forgets to give her a hug and a kiss before he leaves for a short walk. She will definitely pull at your heartstrings! "Separation anxiety can happen almost overnight, which makes it shocking to parents," says Sara Abbot, associate director of the Family Resource Counseling Center in Los Angeles. It is often not just a one-time, babyhood phase for many kids. The tears and fears related to being apart from the parents can resurface in the toddler and preschool years, posing new challenges and warranting different solutions. As discouraging as that may sound, it can be very helpful to remember that separation crisis is completely normal, even healthy. "From the earliest years of life, we should want children to encounter ordinary adversity because it's practice for building resilience," says Aaron Cooper, Ph.D., coauthor of ‘I Just Want My Kids to Be Happy! Why You Shouldn't Say It…’ Fortunately, there's plenty you can do to minimize your child's angst, as well as your own, along the way. You can start early, to accustom your baby to you leaving for a period of time for work. Keep your goodbye short always and keep a cheerful mode on. You might be faking it, but do not let your little know you are sad to leave them at home. And of course, do what this little tot’s dad did and create a ritual when they get older, to create order into the departure.
