Early School Blues - How to tackle
Created by Updated on Jul 27, 2016
My daughter is 3+ and recently started her mainstream school. Earlier she went to a play school and spent 3-4 months which went pretty smooth. Since we shifted her to a mainstream school,she starts panicking from evening until next morning that she will not go to school. pleases suggest how to tackle the issue. smooth

hi Sharddha Srivastav! how r u! it happens with most of the children. when at home just ask her what all she did in school? tell her when u were in school ,u never got the chance to have so much fun. talk about teachers , how much they love her. Meet her teachers in her presence. tell them how can they help u in making her adjust in class. they could give her attention and praise her or motivate her by giving stars or smileys. even addressing her by name and a early morning hug by teachers would do wonders. also u could help her mingle with one or two kids with whom she travels in bus/van who study in her class. tell them to be with her in the class as well, or kids who stay nearby. words of motivation by teachers help children in making a connect with them. remind her of moments when she has fun in class , for instance class assembly, dance class or sports period or activity class . make association of school with fun. hope this helps!

Hi Shraddha, The same happened when my son started going to the mainstream school. He was so much in love with the play school, that it became really very difficult for him to adjust to a different world. But, things were all fine with in 15 days. Have patience, kids adjust to the environment very easily. But, after few months, he again started getting cranky about going to the school, we figured out that there was a boy in his class who use to fight with him and scare him with little things. That very thing,got him fearful and he hesitated going to the school. I made a call to his class teacher infront of him complaining about the boy and made my son also speak to her.. which actually made things very normal... He enjoys going to the school now.. Please figure out, is there something which is bothering him??
