my youngest boy cruz is going to kindergarten next year and we have orientation this week I am so sad. I am having all kind of feelings. Did you have the same feelings? and what did you do to get through? I am so nervous for him he is going to be five in may but he is so small. he looks like he is 3. I am scared they are going to pick on him. How can I get over these feelings?

i have a child who just started kindergarten this yr. so i understand. he just turned 5 when he started so i get it. he also has adhd so of course i was worried about that and at the time we did not have him on med's. so here's what i think and what helped me accept and be ok with it all. My child needs to learn how to be independent. he needs to learn how to deal with situations cause mommy cant always be around. its our job as moms to raise health, stable children. we can not begin to teach them once they are 10 or 11 they have to start now. u dont have to let them go, u just have to let them start showing them how life, REAL life, works. yes at five i think they need to know that the world doesnt revolve around them and the money doesnt grow on trees. and that they will be ok if they go off and mom is not there. they learn to trust othere people. which is good. he will be fine. if people pick on him them teach how to stand up for himself in an approiate way. dont share ur anxieties with him. hope he does well and that u do to.
