Sometimes JoJo cries.
"I want my mommy "
Her mommy says,
"I see you're sad.
I'll miss you too,
but I'll be back...

...right after you go to the park.

Even if it's for a short amount of time, Mom and Dad reassure them not to worry because they will always come back. Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers about helping toddlers with saying goodbye.

Written with simple language and reflective of children's realities, the Terrific Toddlers series is based on understanding of the developmental level of young toddlers. Titles include All Mine , Boo-Boo , and Bye-Bye .

From the Note to Parents and Caregivers:

Unfortunately, what to do during leave-taking is not at all obvious. In fact, it's counterintuitive. We adults are conditioned to "soothe" by saying, "It's OK. Don't worry. It's not a big deal." But your departure is a big deal to your toddler, and saying it isn't actually adds insult to injury. Anxious feelings don't go away by avoiding them or distracting from them. While this approach may be more comfortable in the moment, it amounts to telling your toddler that these feelings aren't authentic--which only adds your toddler's feeling misunderstood to the good-bye experience
