I enrolled my three years old son in a preschool in playgroup in October. He went there very happily for two-three months. After winter break, he went to school without any problem. Then he could not go to school for four days as he was ill. Now he suddenly refused to go to school. The whole thing started with statements "kids step over my hands and hurt me". I talked to his teacher and she told me its nothing to worry about, sometimes at play time kids mistakenly step over each others hands and we instruct them to put their hands in their lap when play sitting on the floor. Then one day when I woke him up to get ready for school, he started crying badly that I wont go, kids beat me. I tried to assure him that it wont happen, I talked to his teacher again but she says it is not true. Nobody hit him, he is making excuses to avoid school. Now its story of each day. He cries real hard, refuses to eat breakfast, I forcefully dress him up and drop him to school. His teacher suggested to do so and assured the problem will be solved. But things are getting worse. Since yesterday he cries after each half hour saying kids beat me. Don’t send me to school. Today I didn’t send him to school and went there to talk to teacher once again. She told me he does not take interest in coloring activity and when coloring task starts, he sleeps which I think is natural after so much crying and fuss in the morning. I am really confused what’s going on. Any idea what can be reason of all this and how should I handle the situation?
