My son will be 5 on the 24th of August. We have decided to hold him from Kindergarten due to the fact that he would be one of the very youngest in class, school starts 3 days before he turns 5.
However, we did enroll him in Vacation Bible School at the school he would be attending, hoping to get him to meet some other children. He has 3 sibs much older than he, and 1 only 13 months younger. He is best friends with a boy going to K this fall. He is now to the point that he wants to stay with daddy if I have to go to the store etc. He used to love going out. Now all he wants is to stay at home, and play with boy down the street. I am enrolling him in preschool, but I fear as with vacation bible school, he will not let me leave.
What can I do to foster some independance in him. Bible school was a disaster and we had to stay and he hardly participated. He says he doesn't want to go to preschool. What to do?
