My 3 1/2 year old started all day preschool on 8-30. Before, that he was in full time day care. His day care was basically one big room in his provider's home.
The first day of preschool went great. No crying, no fussing. He was like "See ya. I have toys to play with and friends to meet." The next 3 days he cried at drop off.
He's not crying anymore but he's still a little clingy. Thank God my husband does drop off b/c I'm not sure I could handle it, LOL. "I don't want you to go Daddy. I want to go with you." DH is firm but loving and tells him he must go. Once DH leaves, DS is fine.
Is there anything I can do to help him get over the clinginess? I thought about a reward chart. If he lets Daddy go without a fuss every day for a week, he'll get a reward? Or daily?
Thanks in advance!

I agree don't reward. It's so normal. As long as his day AT pre school is going good, you have nothing to worry about.
