The past 2 years my son at the beginning of school would be really sad, and even cry at times. But now what concern's me is he isn't crying but the night before school he follow's me around saying things like "why can't i homeschool him'?? Or why do we not have more day's off..And this can go on for hour's, wev'e tried to redirect him and it use to work..But now he doesn't want to play..he just want's to be thinking of being away from us, .. I've tried being harsh and firm,this hasn't worked..also cause i do not know if it's right to punish him for missing us..I've talked to his teacher she say's he's a great kid, she uses him as a role model, and he's very smart...So what can i do should i take him to a counslor..i've tried the school's..but it hasn't worked..please help..."feeling guity for pushing him AWAY>>>>>>
