my first child had always been very demanding. Demanding more love affection and attention. she was an early walker and talker. always ahead and i was so so proud of that. she was also a cry baby so i knew when the time came to send her school, that she will do good at studies but will cry because she wouldn’t want to leave mum and home. she went to kinder, almost every day crying. she remained fine there. the only leaving part was hard for her. and so she was usually in tears. it was hard for me too, but i knew it would get better with time and i am happy that it did. she goes happily now. she had always loved learning new things and she is making new friends. love it :)

  • It can be just as hard for Mum letting go of her baby, as it is for the child letting go of Mum. But it’s a natural progression, and there are very few children who don’t get over the upset. Mum’s too, for that matter. Enjoy sharing in her experiences as she learns, and used her imagination and creativity to make you proud.


    • I must admit I felt teary when my babies started school.

  • My first son was ready for school at 4, with my second son he hated school and wasnt ready, we ended up holding him back a year and he started last year and loved it, they will and do get used to it

  • As kids get used to new routines, new surroundings and new people they will become happy. It takes some longer than others.

  • I think a lot of children go throughout this exact thing i know my son did when he first started child care but once he started kindy he was fine even tells us that we can go and not hang around lol.
    Just wondering if he will go back the other way once he starts school as its every day not 3.

  • its always hard when they put the tears on, I am sure they do it just to make us feel bad, glad it has all settled down now

  • We move frequently for work. Each move our girls have proved that children are so resilient. Glad to hear she is settling well now.

  • Im glad your daughter has settled well into school now.
    I was also worried with my son starting kindy as he was always with me before starting there but to my surprise he loves it and always goes in and says “ok you can go now mum”

  • I’m glad she’s settled in with only a tear or two. Sounds like she just realising how fun school is.

  • My first just waved goodbye, my cry baby starts next year. When her brother left daycare to go to prep she was devastated for months. They are only a year apart and so close. Fingers crossed mine will settle like yours.

  • Fantastic and you know what when I went to school I did the same thing, apparently I screamed down the whole of outside assembly it was many many years ago now but I remember some other little girls saying Don’t worry it will be fine.

  • So many kids have trouble with the separation. I’m delighted your girl is now happy.
