    Default Crying at drop off to daycare

    Just wondering if/when little ones generally stop crying b4 daycare? I know separation anxiety is normal. DS 21 months settles quickly (in 5 - 10 mins) but it is incredibly stressful to leave a crying child. DS has been going to the same daycare for about 7 months. Did your little one stop crying at a certain age?

    Yes, my DS 20 months cries. They say he grows out of it but 6 months later he didn't. It's just habit now and I just drop him off put him on the carpet square and let him cry and say have a good day mummy be back later. It doesn't change, same every day. What has changed in my response to his crying. I'm ok with it now and I know it's just his thing and by the time I have driven away he's happy eating breakfast.

    My DS cried every day and had to be walked outside to distract him by a carer every single day until he was nearly 4. He was always fine within minutes (I'd sneak a look). DD never cried once.

    Once he started getting old enough to develop particular friendships he was fine. He's shoot off with his buddy in seconds.

    I have the opposite problem, my son bursts into tears when he sees me come to pick him up, he gets over emotional.. I hope it doesnt last too long

    I think the centre is pretty good. He's always happy and busily playing when we pick him up. DS will scream and cry when either myself or DP leave the house and he can't come for a drive as well. Just so clingy at this age (21 months). Guess he just loves us :-)
