On being a likeable mom and separation anxiety

It has been hard for Xielo not seeing her friend KK on campus and not playing with her often (Her friend moved out of campus) . These past few weeks we’ve been into some up and down of emotions. We saw a lot of crying over simple things, being sad and some disobedience. So we have been disciplining her quite a lot. I can say that it was not the best mother and daughter kind of weeks. Maybe she is having a separation anxiety and that’s how she was coping up on missing her friend.

But last Friday when I was giving her a bath before going to school she said “Mom my classmate was eating rice and egg and he is using his hands. I told him to stop eating and use his spoon and fork and then he was so mad at me.” Then she started laughing and I was laughing with her too.

We were still talking and giggling then she said, you know mom I like you today.
