Thanks so much for the very concretely useful information. It was helpful to understand that the ending of Special Time is integral to the fun-loving time within in allowing a mini-separation and what that brings. Things have definitely gotten better over this week with these small changes. We’ve been successful to explain that mommy and daddy will return when at “Sky blue”, and that’s given her more comfort during bedtime.
While I’m still stuck in her room until she falls asleep, but hopefully we’ll be able to work through this transition as we continue to set more limits during the day to increase her confidence.
Thanks a million!! Greatly, greatly appreciated.
