Today was my daughter's first day at preschool. For starters, she had a very hard time staying. Then, when I picked her up (which she also cried) her teacher told me that, aside from throwing up twice, she did well. Do you all think he just said that to not make me feel as bad?
I feel like she thinks I abandon her... makes me feel guilty for taking her to school. I won't lie, but I even wanted to get her out of school and postpone this whole thing until next year... Advice, anyone???????

The best thing you can do is hug her, kiss her and tell her you will pick her up later. Let them calm her. Most kids calm the minute you are out of site. The longer you hang around and try to diffuse it yourself the worse it gets. It will get better. It usually takes kids a few weeks to adjust. I suggest bringing a small treat for when you pick her up. I bring our DD a muffin everyday when I pick her up. Of course that is to bribe her to go home since she doesn't want to leave school with me.

Are any of you dealing with a strong willed child?
