I teach kinder and several of my kids never went to daycare or head start so they have been with Mom with little or no separation. So here is my problem. I have one little girl who is still crying when she comes to school even 12 weeks into the school year. Mom and I seem to be on the same page as far as getting her to school. There is no staying home just because. Mom has contacted me several,times about the issue. There seems to be different reasons all the time as tomwhynshe doesn't want to come to school. One time it was moms bday. Another time it was someone was bullying her. Another time it was she didn't like to go to computer lab. All kinds of excuses. I have been pretty patient up to this point but I find myself being less and less patient and telling her she needs to stop, go wash her face, get it together and continue our day. This morning our library aide was walking with her and consoling her. All I could was say lets go lets get to class. I feel bad on one hand but on the other hand I'm like enough is enough. It's 12 weeks in and we need to just get our day started. None of my own children were like this except maybe my youngest. She doesn't cry but she does hate school. Anyway just venting but feel free to tear me apart for being so insensitive. Lol.
