As he's looking at me from the window of the bus I can tell that he's holding back tears and trying to be strong. So of course, the minute that the bus leaves and I know he can't see me anymore I let my tears come out because I am not as strong as him and can't stand to see him unhappy. Even if I know that as soon as he gets to school he's going to be having so much fun learning and playing that he's going to forget all about how scared he was. Both myself and my husband have talked to him nightly about his fears and feelings towards school, he knows he has to go to school and he understands why I just wish that the uneasiness feeling that he has about it would just go away already. Does it ever get easy?
How do you or have you dealt with your child's back to school or first day of school jitters?
