  • My son is the same way but I find that he tends to be better when I am not around. He wants to attach himself to an adult and most Pre-K and K teachers are fairly nuturing so I wouldn't worry about it. I'm sure he'll be fine. It took my son all of two days to adjust himself to school and he absolutely loves it and his teacher.

  • My little boy is like this. It was horrible, but he is getting much better:) We just started having our friends over more often and slowly but surely he is becoming more comfortable.
