Separation Anxiety Story

Separation anxiety may have been made worse for a lot of little ones due to COVID-19 and the stay at home orders. This story talks about mom or dad leaving the house and how it might make children sad.  It guides them on what they CAN do instead of whining, crying or pulling on parents.  A cue card for deep breathing and a cue card for "my mom/dad will come back" can be used to give your child something tangible to hold on to and focus on.


  1. Have you thought about writing a similar separation story...but with the child separating from the parent because the child will be returning to school (even if just 1 or 2 times a week?)

  2. Do you have a social story on separation anxiety for school? Many of me kindergarten students have such a hard time at the beginning of the school year.
    Thank you for providing these materials, you have no idea how many students you have helped!

  3. Het jy dalk moontlik hierdie storie oor skeidingsangs vir skool dalk in Afrikaans asseblief? Baie dankie vir die deel van die stories!
