And not only that, we had a very hard time to get him comfortable to go to school so every time he was sick , snow days, long days off of school it was like starting all back over again. The teacher had to literally pull him off of me. I never had him go to day care or had anyone baby sit him it was just always me (mommy) with him. So it was hard nog only for him but for me to. specially leaving the school and him there crying for mommy. I cried to after i got to my car. I also felt like i was the bad guy. Even worse when i was thinking that something at school is making him feel uncomfortable that he would have a death grip on me. But i figured out that it is just an extream case of separation anxiety. It got alil better as he wasnt getting sick and was able to stay on a schedule.

I had the same problem with my son who also is in kindergarden. He has missed more days of school then what he has attended. We even had to take him in to the hospital do to high fever that lasted more then 3 days. We thought that he might of had pneumonia. Now that it is becomeing spring he hasnt been sick. And the school has started a sanitation day were they clean the whole school.

This is actually very normal. All of our kids, in the first years of daycare or school, would frequently get sick. Children are germ factories! When large groups of them get together, they spread the love. Because they haven't been in school before, their immune systems haven't built up as much resistance. It takes some time. They eventually get there. Mine are much older now, and they hardly ever get sick with anything. In fact, my son has only had about 5 days off school sick in the last 4 years.

There isn't a huge amount you can do. Lots of hand washing, healthy food, and good sleep may help, but honestly, schools and daycares are disease factories.
