The Good Goodbye: Strategies for Families

Try strategies such as the following:

  •  Have a routine for leaving home to go to school. For example, you might make up a silly song to sing in the car as you are on your way: “Off we go to Jackie’s school, Jackie’s school, Jackie’s school. Off we go to Jackie’s school, early in the morning!”
  •  Create a goodbye ritual to separate with love. For example, you might say, “Momma loves you more, here are two quick kisses and I’ll give you two more when I pick you up after work.”
  •  Leave without making a big deal, trusting that the educators know how to support your child’s big emotions.
  •  Never leave without saying goodbye. Sneaking away only heightens a child’s worry that they cannot trust you or trust in your return.
