my poor little Monkey! just not sure what to do :-/
Now he wakes up and goes to school. gets. no nap, comes home at 3:30. and by 6 he is completely exahsted and needs to go to bed. he also has to got to his dads from 4on Fridays to 6 on Sundays three weeks a month. (Didn't seem so bad before, but now that he's in full day school its a lot),
since starting school, he has been so upset! he is weting his bed again. pooing his pants (even when the bathroom is right next door!) today he beat up his sister for the first time in his life!
I just don't know what to do to help make this huge adjustment easier for him! Does anyone have any advice?? id really appreciate it!!
***UPDATE. EVERYTHING IS BETTER THANKS!***
We tried the extra nap in the afternoon, but it just made him more cranky.
On our walk home i saw a bruise on Monkey. when i asked him how he'd gotten it i found out that he has been getting beat up on a daily basis by the kindergarten gang. yes, in my sons school there is a gang of three 5yr olds who beat kids up! Monkey had told me of an altercation that he'd had on day one of school with C, the gangleader. since then, every day on the playground, C and his 2friends have chased Monkey and punched him. when i asked where he sai wherever they hit. sometimes on the arms or legs or head. They told him if he told anyone that they would punch him again. so he just suffered through it for three weeks straight!
we talked and i talked to his teachers. He hasn't had a problem at school from these kids since. and he is back to being my sweet little Monkey. no accidents either.
thanks for all the advice! and I'm glad the people who had nothing nice to say were wrong. he's a great kid. and adjusting very well now that he is no longer being bullied <3
