My son started pre school last Sept and has not adjust to school since! He cries alot, acts out and disrupts the class. He has started going to school half day and its still happening! We tried everything! I am thinking about changing schools but wonder if it will happen again. Was looking for another school but no one will take him til sept and now i am worried to send him back. I dont want him to be discrimimated against because of his behavior by the teachers. Some of their faces already look stressed from the time they see him. Dont know what to do! I have talked to him over and over and nothing! Cant stay home as i am a single mom and have to work. Help!

Your son must pull your heart strings to leave him feeling so sad! When my kids were young, my older son reacted much the same way yours is doing. I felt helpless and guilty. He would even run back to the car while talking with the teacher! Finally, I met with the Principal and teacher to find a resolution. They were helpful in finding new strategies to deal with his tantrums or acting out. One wise word spoke was that perhaps he sensed my sadness and despair over leaving him as he cried. Meaning he picked up my emotions thinking it was not such a good place to be left.
Maybe, if you give him reassurance or something from home to carry as a promise you are coming back. Plus affirming him that it is ok to be there? Being a single mom is tough, but the caregivers are there to help and support you during his transition. I'll be thinking and praying for you!

do you work everyday on a set schedule? or do you sometimes get days off during the week?
