My son is 2 years and 10 months old. We have recently changed his playschool/day boarding because our office is relocated. It's been close to 2 years now he's the habit of going every day in the morning till evening. Since we have moved here and got him admission in a new school. Now, he never goes to his new school happily ever after, here in the new school also it's been 2 months already. He cries every day before going n says I don't want to go to the school n mom you don't go to office please. Every day leaving him like this to his school disturbs me to the core n I fail to understand the reason behind.

hey sit with him quietly n ask wat the reason. someone's bullying him or something which he can't tell but not liking it. reason cud be something fishy also. u take this seriously it's not normal a kid who is use to this routine suddenly became so fussy in going n now it's the months as u saying it's not normal.

Hi Priyanka, you have mentioned that you have recently relocated. If that is the case, you have to understand that everything is new for the child. As grown ups feel a little out of place when we go to a completely unfamiliar location. For a toddler its much more difficult. Every face he was familiar with, trusted and spent time with has changed. And that is why he is not comfortable. Just give him time. Spend as much time as possible with him, is possible start going to his school for a few days with him, just try and emphasis the feeling of safety by being there for him and slowly he will adjust. He will start to settle in at the new school. Having said that, even after doing this exercise, if he still feels anxious then may be you will have to look for other reasons.
