During the week of Feb. 9, AP mom Grace Zell will take readers through her journey of trying to find "me" time despite her daughter's separation anxiety. To check out the article, "Separation without Anxiety," go to TheAttachedFamily.com and log in using the details from the Winter 08-09 Healing Childhood Wounds issue of The Journal of API. Grace's article will be featured all week and then archived in "The Infant" section of the website.
After reading the article, I'd love to hear your thoughts on resolving separation anxiety, particularly about reading your child's cues. When did you know your child was ready to go to nursery school or to be left with a babysitter while you had some "me" time or a date with your spouse?
