any suugestions would be great.
If a parent insists their child needs comforting before they leave, I would provide a quiet place they can go AWAY from others where they can go hug or whatever they want alone.... but not within the classroom of other kids. Just tell the moms that it is a privacy issue so they are NOT allowed to be near/around or next to the other kids. You'll do the same for their child should another parent want to visit.

You will more than likely find however the second you offer them a private space to snuggle, the parent will more than likely pass. It's not the snuggling/comforting their child they are aiming at. It's attention for THEM. Once you remove the audience (you/other children) they no longer see the "issue" as an issue.

midaycare This is a big issue for some parents, making it a big issue for us

I always stress to the parents that they are making things worse for their child. This usually helps them rethink the behavior.

Cat Herder You could do your own version of the kiss and go campaign on each classroom door.
