Why is my child experiencing separation anxiety at bedtime?


Answer by  Roland27 (16334)

Young children often have problems at bedtime. You just have to get through them. Your child may be afraid of the dark, or the boogy man in the closet or the monster under the bed. Kids are afraid of tons of fictional characters. Get your child a night light, that should help to ease some of the child's fears.

This depends on the age of your child. If you child is a toddler it is probably just development. If you child is older it may be stress related.

Your child has likely had some upsetting experiences and needs a little more comfort than normal. This is a phase that will soon pass if you remain calm and nurturing.

All children go through a period in which they have separation anxiety during any time that they are not in the same room as their primary care giver. Depending on his or her age it occurring at bed time could be considered a stall tactic. Try and assure him or her that you are right in the next rom.
