Find below an articule to the Solution to Your Kids Not Hating First day in PreSchool-
Before your kids were born you swore you’d never let them camp out in front of the TV, but a lot of times that’s exactly what happens. The truth is, when it comes down to choosing between paying rent and singing the abc’s, Elmo wins. But it really makes you feel horrible because not so deep down you know it ain’t right.
So this preschool thing has to work out this time. She needs to evolve and you need to work. So what are you going to do different?
Well, your first strategy will be to stick around for a while at drop off. The last time you did a drop-and-go, meaning you were in-and-out of the preschool in 10 minutes. Thinking back, it was probably like dropping her into the deep end of the swimming pool and hoping that she’d swim. She didn’t. Your bad.
You’re sitting in her classroom on a chair the size of a miniature doll set, waiting for her to look comfortable. It ain’t happening. After 30 minutes of singing ‘the wheels on the bus,’ ‘Old McDonald,’ and ‘itsy bitsy spider,’ you see an opportunity to make a move. You stand up to go and she’s on you like skin. This is the dreaded moment that has kept you awake at night. Not again.
The teacher comes over and firmly takes her hand. All the while she’s screaming like someone is trying to put her into a mental institute. The sound follows you all the way home. When you pick her up that afternoon she won’t even look at you.
Later that evening, you ask your trusted advisor Dr. Jane Fort if there’s anything you can do to make the transition easier. She says that while it’s frustrating for you as a mom, the key is to tell her the facts, straight and simple. “I think you’re going to enjoy it here. I’ll be back to get you after nap.” She’s all about open communication.
Same thing. Different day. You feel horrible for leaving her. Are you doing the right thing? You hit Dr. Fort up a second time. She recommends that you give it a month probationary period. “If after a month she’s still not adjusting, either find another place or speak to the teacher or director to see if there are any changes that can be made. Sometimes a tweak to the schedule or a different class can make all the difference.”
After breaking out of one of her padlock grips, you look your daughter straight in the eyes and say, “Listen, mama has to work. Daddy has to work. Your sister is in school and now it’s your turn. This is your new school.” Is she convinced? You don’t know, but she let’s go of your hand.
Picking her up in the afternoon you find a site to behold. She’s sitting at the table chatting with another little girl. The teacher said she played, and for the first time she didn’t pee her pants. Thank God for progress.
As the two of you walk away your mind reflects on the words of your friend Jevonne. She says it’s okay to let them cry. It won’t destroy them. It’s all a part of life. She’ll get used to it.
