Photo taken during day 1, 8am, yes pity him, still looking very sleepy and moody :p
I accompanied him for 15 minutes, he seems a bit scared in the beginning but when teacher approached with toys, he seems ok... I let him played and secretly left the school. Of course days before the actual day, I kept telling him about the good sides of school, let him 'prepared'. And after getting opinions from other mummies, I reassured him that I will be back to fetch him and if he's a good boy, he'll be rewarded.
Like a meal at McD ;)
When I fetched him at school, I saw him running out with teary eyes. According to the teacher, he cried on and off when he realized I was gone. But overall he was ok.
Second day onwards, he seems to realize what's going on and until today, whenever I woke him up and got him ready, he will cry badly saying 'don't want'. Because of the tantrums, we were late to school these few days (but I guess it's ok since I realize many parents also are late).
Luckily, Aden follows me to the car even though he is crying.....And according to the teacher, he stopped crying when I left.
At first, I felt bad cause seeing him crying so badly, and he caught the cough bug and is still coughing now (but getting better). I thought may be he wasn't ready yet? And I think toddler like him will take even longer to adapt cause he's with me all the time since birth, thus he is super clingy to me.
But after getting opinions from other parents, I felt slightly relief, most of their kids cry too and it takes times, so I decided to give another week to see how is he doing.
Some say it's too early to send him to school. I thought of that before but then, if I let him stay at home, all he'll be doing is making mess, or playing iPad.
I want him to learn to be more disciplined/independent and also able to talk properly, most importantly I want him to mix with kids.
I really hope he can adapt to school soon!
