Since my 5 year old finished school for the summer she has been very emotional. She was in Transitional Kindergarten for the school year. What can we do to help her.

It sounds like maybe she is just 'off her routine'. (My niece is also 5 and went through the same thing after school let out!!!)

I think that the best thing for her might be for you to talk to her about her home routine. (Routines make children feel safe, so she will probably calm down once she gets used to her 'home routine'.) I always talk to my kids about the end of the school year, about friends they will miss and the friends they might see at school when it starts again. My youngest likes to know how much longer it will be until he gets to go back to school. (The ten year old, though...not so much...)

Hope this helps!
