6–12 MONTHS LOOKING OR CALLING OUT FOR THE PARENT

Decoded message:

I don’t feel safe, because I can’t see or hear you and I need to know where you are.

Suggested actions:

Comforting

Speak gently to your child even when you are in another room.
Tell him what you are doing and keep talking until you return within sight.
The sound of your voice reassures him and lets him know that you are nearby.

Making amends

Go see your child.
Hold him in your arms to let him know that you are back and that you are happy to see him.
Tell him: “Did you wonder where I was? I wasn’t very far, there’s no need to worry.”

Adapting your actions to be more receptive

Take the time to know your child better.
He is showing you that he needs you close at all times.
Know when he doesn’t like to be left alone and make sure that he is with you as often as possible.
