Starting School

A child’s first day of school can be a very stressful time for parents, especially if it’s their eldest or only child. However children can be very independent at that age and they really can’t wait to start school. They usually settle after one or two days and usually love going to school. Children can pick up on parents anxieties but just be positive and try and leave class as soon as you can after dropping them off…even if they are crying
