COLUMBUS, Ohio — Dropping off your child at day care is not always easy on moms and dads. There are some ways to cope with the transition and good-bye drama that can have a big impact on both parents and kids.
At City Kids Day Care downtown in Arena District, Allie Depoy said she starts preparing her daughter Aurelia before they arrive at the center because her toddler hasn’t developed a sense of time yet. Depoy said it’s important to be consistent. “I tell her mommy comes back after you have had your nap and your lunch and your snack and mommy will be back after that. she doesn’t understand mommy will be back in 8 hours.”
