How does a child get separation anxiety?

Does something bad have to happen to them?


Answer by  Mary (2095)

This is a natural phase that every child goes through with the realization that they are a separate person from their parents.


Answer by  MommyE (10)

Children experience separation anxiety to varying degrees. It is a normal developmental milestone and rather than signify trauma, is a sign of healthy emotional development.

No, something bad doesn't have to happen to them. It's just something some children have, there doesn't have to be a known cause.
