    Ah, Mothers, Part 6

    | New Jersey, USA | Family & Kids

    (The child I’m working with is crying, so I go outside to talk to the mother.)

    Me: “Your child seems to have some separation anxiety, ma’am. It’s against the rules, but I could let you stay and watch her work so she’ll feel better.”

    Mother: “Oh, I think she’ll be fine after awhile. See, she’s been upset since we moved here from Chicago.”

    Me: “Yeah, that’s difficult for a child sometimes.”

    Mother: “But don’t tell her we moved, okay? We told her we were only going on a vacation. She has no idea we’re not going back.”
