Ds 3.5 is really struggling.
Dh has been working away since April. He comes and goes every week. He's mostly away from home.
Nannas gone on holidays for 3 weeks.
Mum (me) goes to work 3 days a week.
Ds is distraught. I can't move without him getting upset.
I understand the triggers for it but I don't know how to help him cope.
I took leave off work this week just to calm him down.
He's gone from loving preschool to absolutely crying the house down. I can't seem to console him. And the school's great, but it just doesn't help.
How do I help him?
Pls help. It's hard to watch him be so upset

My 3.5yo is doing the same (but no one has gone away), he looses it if I leave the room and has to hold my hand or clothes as I move from room to room - it's doing my head in as it's been going on for a while. His paed says it's related to anxiety as he becomes more aware of the world. I don't have any solutions yet as I'm waiting to see someone to discuss it further.
But hugs, you're not alone.
