This is not uncommon at your son's age. At this stage of his life the main fear that children have is that of being separated from their mother. Fear of strangers is also common. It is usually a combination of these two situations which causes such distress. This is usually a passing problem and tends to disappear within a few months. In the meantime your reassuring presence is very important and a cuddle and a bit of reassurance is all that is usually needed. If you suspect that your son's problem is unusually svere or it persists beyond the age of 2 years then he should be seen by a child psychologist.
