Arizona is a girl who likes to know what’s happening ahead of time. She thrives on visual schedules and really likes to talk about things well before they happen.
When I first started going on trips without Arizona, I came up with a creative way to keep her in touch with what I was doing. This way she knows that even though I’m not physically present, I am still thinking about her.
Here’s my process :
Arizona is much less anxious when I leave. She has the letters to look forward to and feels connected to me, even as I am away.
I’d love to hear different ideas you use to help ease transitions and lower anxiety for your children. Do you follow a certain routine? How does this help your child / children?
