Separation Anxiety

Separation Anxiety involves a child becoming severely distressed when separated from the primary caregiver (usually the mother). It is normal for babies to experience separation anxiety, but when the problem persists beyond the usual developmental stage (around 8-14 months), it begins to become more concerning. Separation Anxiety can feel extremely distressing for parents as well as children.
