my son is 4. 5 years old. recently I shifted to Hyderabad from kolkata. I admitted him in LKG in a school here... it is now almost 1 month but still he cries since he opens his eyes in the morning till he reaches the school. he says mamma i dont like to go to school. because you are not there in the class and start crying. I made him understand that I stay outside the school for the whole day you don't worry you go to school and sit in the class but still he keep on saying that.. It feels me bad when he pleads me that.. what to do.. how to handle this?

I understand your concern. It is normal for him to cry. It takes time to adapt to new places and situations. Please be patient and supportive. He will cry but it is temporary. Just keep telling him that his school timing is till ... and that you would be at the gate to pick him up. It is just separation anxiety. Though it is difficult you will have to persist in your routine. He will settle down gradually. When you leave him, kiss and hug and tell that he is going to have fun and that you would pick him at .. pm. Without lingering leave soon. Please read this for some handy tips to deal with separation anxiety for your child. I hope these give you some ideas
