My son starts 1st grade next week, so this will be his first time going full day, since kinder was only half. He's really nervous, and doesn't want to go. Says he hates school and wants to quit, and all sorts of stuff like that. How can I make him feel more comfortable, and actually WANT to go, so the teachers don't have to pry him off me on the first day :\Answer Question

My daughter, (who is now 25) couldn't wait to go to school. She would watch the bus go by in the morning and be so frustrated she couldn't be on it. So when she started kindergarten, she was fine. I was a mess, but she was fine. I followed the bus in my car, and I watched her get off the bus and go into her kinder class. My son went to the same school I taught in, so I drove him to school, and I could drop in and see how he was doing during the day.
