Yes, it had to happen one day. Every mother finds it difficult to leave a child for the first time. The first separation, be it the child's first day in a creche or a school, is always a painful process. Mothers, even fathers, find it difficult to digest the separation. Here are tips to handle the situation better.
* Research shows that timely separation is good for children
Contrary to popular notion, recent psychiatric research shows that stopgap separation is beneficial for a child's future. Too much of parent bonding spoils the child. Therefore, do not be overly bothered about the child's welfare when you break away for the first time.
* Let your child out of the cocoon
Your home provides a very protective environment for the child. Therefore it is always advisable for a child to leave the home turf and wander outside. The outside world has certain lessons to give.
