My daughter loves school but HATES getting up in the morning. I make her go to bed as early as possible, she is just hard to wake up. You just got to keep your cool and make them move

My daughter says something similar, that she doesn't like school and doesn't want to go. I have found that it is usually her way of saying she misses me now that I am working. We talk about it and I explain how much I love her and miss her too, but that unfortunately I have to work and so she has to go to school. Then I make plans with her to spend one on one time with me.

Hi! Does he tell you he doesn't like something specific about school? You might want to investegate and see if he has a real reason to not like his school. Some teachers do not treat all kids fairly and you may need to have a conference to see what is up.  Maybe it isn't clicking. If you have the ability to switch preschools that could help. If there is nothing wrong with the situation, he just doesn't want to get up or whatever- I think the other ladies have given you some good things to think about!

i would go into school to make sure there is not something that is causing this .but i think most 4 yr olds do this as its a big change,both of mine did ! .keep him consistent and get teachers to help you.

I know what you mean my 4 yr old says the same thing.  I have a hard time with him everyday.  I do not know what to do and he is only in Pre-K my question is what is going to happen when he starts to go to kindergarten.
