The first week of school was mostly just crying for my son but now his 2nd week in school he has started hating school and throws a huge fit when I try and make him go to class. A kicking and screaming fit I have never seen him do before. I am pregnant and can't physically carry him to class anymore. Wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem or ideas to help make this easier to handle.Answer Question

Routine from the time he gets home until the time he gets up in the morning. Wake up in plenty of time to get ready, do most things the night before, and allow him time to play for school. If he starts to whine or has a tantrum tell him its okay to be upset and he has a right to his thoughts and feelings. But your ears have the right to not hear his very obvious displeasure. Tell him he needs his own personal space and time. Place him in his room. Not for timeout. For personal time and to help him (and you) be more calm. He may resist the first few times. But do what you need to to leave on time and keep him away from you while he is having a fit. Or you can sit quietly with him while he is upset in his room. Then give him choices for the ride to school. Music, toy to carry in the car...just choices within your routine. Have someone else come over and drive him to school. Sometimes the tantrums ease when it is
