My 8 year old boy has recently been getting very anxious at the thought of me leaving him alone for example at karate or at friends house for the day.
For a long time he was able to do this without problem. However the last week he is freaking out each day. He says he misses me so much and gets very lonely even if he is with his friend.
At karate I stayed for a while then left for half an hour and he was pretty fine.
I don't know if its connected but his Grandma died from cancer 6 months ago and now his other grandmother is dying from the same thing.
