What to do When Your Child Melts Down and Does Not Want You out of His Sight.
These words can punch you in the stomach leaving you queasy all day long. How do you know if this is a “slow to warm up” typical reaction for your child, a desperate siren call commanding you to snatch him from the abyss of a terrible classroom, or time to teach him how to work with difficult people?
Sometimes along with the relief of returning to a routine comes the angst of whether or not your child is in a good classroom.
How does your child tell you, he’s freaking out about going back to school? Some kids make it pretty obvious, but others are a bit more subtle.
Every year I dread the beginning of school. My daughter begins worrying about it weeks before it starts. How do I help her feel comfortable? During the summer she has a few special friends she plays with regularly, but school always seems a bit overwhelming to her. ~Emma
