This printable Separation Station is designed for you to print and put in a binder to help your child manage big emotions about separating from parents in a healthy way. Sit down with them when they are having trouble regulating their feelings about being away from you and go through the steps together. Smell the flowers (breath in through your nose), blow out the candles (breath out through your mouth). Repeat this a few times. Now have them close their eyes and picture their family while breathing. Next, have them spread their arms out like a bird and then wrap their wings around themselves for a hug. Then, have them make a "school sandwich". First the bread (say goodbye to parents), then the cheese (listen to the teacher), then a tomato (learn at school). then some lettuce (play with friends), then say hello to parents again with the final piece of bread. And lastly, have them decide if they are ready to play and learn. Once you have set up a binder for your separation station you will find these tricks work even when you are not around the binder! Best of luck with the next emotional flood.
