My son has always been anxious and struggles socially. He is having a really hard time adjusting to full day school. Last year he got on the bus at 830 and got home at 1140. This year he doesn't get home until 340. He cries and begs me to stay home. He says he likes school but misses me and the day is too long. Any ideas to help him in this transition. I"m hoping he adjusts fast because it breaks my heart.

My daughter's class read this book in both preschool and kindergarten. Then she came home with a paper hand that we had to decorate with comforting reminders of home. Once she brought it back to school, it was laminated and stuck into the back of her cubby where she hung her coat/backpack. If the kids were feeling a little homesick, they could go look at their hand.
Maybe suggest this book and project to his teacher as something for the class to do. I bet there's more than one kid having a hard time adjusting.
