Worried about my son.

In the last few weeks.

I have noticed my youngest son telling me every now and again he does not want me to go to school with him , or be at school beside him for more then 5-6 minutes before he snaps.

He kind of has changed and I want to speak to the Teacher about this , but i don't know when to pop in and request a time to speak with him. As we all know they are full on most of the time!

When do you guys ask to speak to a teacher? and how to go about this so its more effective on both the parent and the teacher.

regards ,

Ok, your son is 11 years old (checked profile). He is growing up. This is totally normal. He doesn't want you to be there with him all the time. He is in school - he does NOT need your protection. He needs his independence. He is crying out for his independence. This is his way of saying "mum, I am not a little baby any more". It has nothing to do with how he feels about you, it is more to do with him growing up. No 11 year old boy wants their mother around them at school other than to drop them off and pick them up.

I would actually try talking to him first. There could be problems at school with his friends because your hanging around him or popping up at school too often. Talk to him and let him know he can tell you anything and you will not get upset because you love him. That's really the best advice I can give, often the teachers don't see what's going on in the "underground" world of our babies. Leave an urgent message with the schools secretary and the teacher should be able to phone conference you after school.

Yes! at the beginning of this year , I had to make changes to adjust routine a bit and prior I used to take full care of him , It just happened this year that I had to start getting back into the work force and studying of finding study places and courses to attend so that I could work on my career again , i am just worried that about him in school not wanting me to be around , because you are right! He usually wants to be a big boy and do everything on his own! but he is still my little boy who still needs protection and to understand this world a little better.
