Now your little angel is able to stay away for you for some time. Although he will still feel distressed when you are away, his world has now expanded and there are many things that can keep him occupied. If your child has already joined a playschool then he would be better adjusted when left for a couple of hours with someone familiar.
What you need to know
Your child still does not have the sense of time and a few minutes away from you will feel like hours to him. It is important that you bid your child bye before leaving instead of sneaking out because that will cause him more distress. Not knowing where you have gone and when you are going to come back will cause him a lot of stress.
