Priya Sood will hv some amazing advice

Suhana, my son did the same . Sharing what helped me - 1. Try to let your child make friends and familiarity with other kids. It helps. 2. Talk at home how fun and safe the school is 3. We even sang a song We love to go to school

I told him v r going to zoo will see animals n enjoy alot but today's kids r so clever he understood easily that this time m taking him to school only...

Aditi Ahuja pls suggest

Will try to convince him

Prepare your kids mentally
We were all scared to death on the first day of school. So think about That. Leaving the comforting rituals of life at home for a new set of people and rules can be scary. Start talking about this several weeks before so that he can have a picture of what is expected. Share your own experience if possible.
2. Put on a happy face.
Though anxiety may kill you inside, try not to show to your little one. Wear a smile, be positive. Give them a hug. ;
3. Keep good bye’s shorter
The more you are going to stay with your child, it’s going to make them feel insecure . So, make good bye’s shorter. ;
4. Don’t panic if they have meltdowns
Even if your child is howling like a banshee and clinging like a barnacle, chances are he’ll be fine five minutes after you walk out the door.
5. Go on a mini shopping spree
Buying her a new backpack, pencil case, and set of crayons will make her feel like a big kid.
6. Plan a day before
Instead of running hither, thither in the morning, keep all the stuff you need for tomorrow at one place like backpack, stationeries etc. Ask your toddler to choose their dress. This would give them some comfort. ;
7. Be a little early
Try to get early to the school on the first day so that you get sometime to talk one on one with the teacher of your pre-schooler, so he/she could get acquainted with the place before the place becomes busy.

I too had tough time in convincing her. She use to cry everyday. Then I started to drop her to her playschool and promised her I will be waiting for her outside gate. For few days I waited later I use to make excuse by saying I have work. Use to tell her she is such a good girl everyday she goes to school. Ask about how she liked what she did, how fun it's to be there with friends. Playing with somany toys with friends will be fun like that. You need to push him everyday.

Amazing advice by everyone..besides this a couple of things that helped me were that one of her teachers supported a each kids support needs are different so I asked her to help a bit with her..also most schools these days share their weekly or monthly plan so singing those rhymes at home..stories..helped her create a connection ki school me bhi ye hota hai so its fun

How many days has it been since his school started?
Majority kids take a couple of weeks to settle.
The person dropping off the child shouldn't panic or show anxiety or cry(I saw a new child's mom crying at the gate at my son's school today). Pls think of how it would adversely affect ur kid who is anyways feeling terrible.
If u r sure that the teachers r competent n capable enough to handle n settle kids inside, then don't worry too much. They do get distracted with all the fun stuff that teachers do with them.
Apart from other moms good suggestions, just keep talking to him, n try to not take a break from school.

Thanks so much to all lovely mummas for giving me motivation....

Suhana gernally all the schools have mother toddler program for a week so that kids become familiar to environment and ppl. Kid knows you are near by and whenever they need you they can come to you. So gradually the place become familiar to them

This school didn't have mother toddler program

I am also enquiring about play schools but every school is offering this program in delhi

Actually dears its kind of settling period..most schools have started but not all..
