Preschool Jitters


Taylor is 3 years old. She has not been to preschool or daycare until this year. Her separation anxiety seems to be getting worse instead of better. As her mom, I’m beating myself up. I should have put her there sooner and this wouldn’t be so hard for her. My oldest child, due to different circumstances, went to daycare at 9 weeks. I never experienced this with her. It’s not that I think Taylor isn’t going to adjust. I’m sure she settles down and is part of the class as soon as I leave. But I also know from her teacher, she will tear up throughout the day. Nap time is the hardest. I’m looking for ways to ease this for her. I found a few articles last night on the web. The tips it gave me, I had already done. Talking about school before she started, getting things ready for school, keeping the routine, being on time to pick her up, getting her help packing up the backpack, staying positive about her meeting new friends and doing new things at school. Maybe I just let it run it’s course, and keep doing those things until she adjusts? Maybe someone will read this and offer me some advice I haven’t thought of….

About tweenspot

I am like so many moms raising young girls, scared I'm doing the right thing and learning with pure amazement at the same time! I feel like I have become my mother (don't we all)..my favorite phrase is "today things are so different than when I/we grew up". The absolute hysteria in that phrase scares me too. I don't want to be scared. I like to think that as a professional, working, college educated women that I can embrace the world we live in. That's why I have been researching Tweens, what they like, do, what's hot and what's trends are going to cost me a fortune in the future! My little girls are the love of my life. By creating this blog, I want a safe internet place for girls and moms to share. This blog is in the infancy stage, but I have big plans for it. So stay tuned.... Read, enjoy, comment. Visit as often as you'd like. I hope together we can build a community for girls and moms to explore, learn and share with one another.
