My Stressed Pre-Schooler

Something seems to be troubling P1. I’m not sure if it’s the nursery teaching her about going to school, the fact her biological Dad was mentioned at the hospital last week or even something to do with P2.

Recently, she’s been very attached to me. Crying when I drop her off to my GrandParents or getting clearly upset when dropping off at nursery. I hate it. I hate seeing her so emotional and I don’t know what’s causing it.

When she’s home with me, she’s really helping out with her sister and wanting lots of cuddles and play. Anyone reading this will think it’s just my daughter being loving and kind… But this isn’t like her at all. My P1 loves to have her own space, like enjoys playing alone and I used to have to beg for a cuddle.

P1 has been having frequent “nightmares” and when she describes them so vividly to me, I can completely understand why her 4 year old, over imaginative brain would be quite scared about it! We’ve had at least three nightmares in the past week.

I just want her to be happy. I need tips on dealing with a stressed emotional 4 year old!?!
