The end of August and the beginning of September mark the start of a new school year. Young children, as well as their parents, are usually excited and somewhat apprehensive as that first school day approaches. For some little ones, this may be the first experience in a new pre-K or Kindergarten classroom, and some anxiety is natural. In fact, when I got home from the first day of school with my pre-K kids or Kindergartners, my husband always asked “how many children cried today?” He knew that there were always a few children who became upset when they were brought into the classroom. Of course, this is upsetting to parents. So allow me to suggest some ways to help your child adjust to his new teacher, classroom and classmates.
