I had success with a little girl when I suggested she keep a
photo of Mommy in the outside pocket of her backpack.
Anytime she missed Mommy she had permission to look in
the backpack at her Mommy's smile. It took about a week
for her to not need to peek at it anymore. It stayed in the
back pack for months however.
I also tell kids it's okay to miss Mommy. "That means you
love each other very much and that's a wonderful thing to
have. And Mommy will pick you up/be at the bus stop/
whatever when our day is over. Right now your job is to
FILL IN THE BLANK so you can tell her all about it when
you see her."
