How to Get Your Child Go to School Without Crying

When it is a time to go to school, most of the kids cry in the begging. Parents can make this difficult time easy by following these simple tips. Find out how to get your child go to school without crying right away.

Most kids cry when they are taken to school because of the separation anxieties, the very thought of getting away from their parents makes them cry. Dragging the kids to school forcefully does no good as that would mean that there must be something to worry about which makes the child more scared and they start crying. Instead take your kids gently to school, introduce them to the teacher and assure them that you would be back just after an hour. Here are some tips given how to get your child go to school without crying.

Create Excitement In Kids

Talk to your kids and encourage them about school. Have a conversation about what she might do at school, talk about the games that your kid can get to play etc. You have to divert your kid’s attention to something that would please her so that she is not scared of the separation from her parents when she is at school. Never stress your kids with negative talks like, “do not create a mess at school”, or “I shall punish you if you cry at school” etc. Never bring out any comparison of your kid with other kids in front of children. It creates a negative influence in small children and they start losing their self confidence which may prove to be very fatal in the years to come.

Acquaint Your Kid With Her School

Before enrolling your kid in a school, make sure that your child is acquainted with her school. Take your kid for a casual walk in the school or meet with the teachers to make her acquainted with the surroundings of the school. This will let her become familiar with the school and its surroundings and she will not feel bizarre at the first day in her school.

Keep Your Little One Busy

It is one of the best ideas to keep your child busy in some activities at the time you head out of your house for taking her to school. Settle your kid by giving her some work so that she has her attention on that work and by that time drop your kid at the school gate and kiss her good bye. The work given to your kid must be interesting so that she is engrossed totally in her activity by the time you bid her goodbye.

Stay Calm And Positive

Always try to keep a confident look to show your kid that you know she will do her best at school. If you look worried about your kid’s preschool drop off, then your little one will be more scared and confused when you drop her at school. Stay calm when you see your kid crying at the separation from you; do not take your kid in your arms again at this moment. This will weaken your kid more and it will be difficult to pacify your child of this separation anxiety.

Do Not Look Back

When you drop your kid at school and she cries continuously, do not look back after dropping her at the school gate. Look straight and walk away. This is very tough but you need to do this for the sake of your child.

Give Her A Good Sleep The Night Before

Kids often behave clingy when they are tired, sleepy or hungry. Make sure these do not become the reason for your child’s uneasiness to go to school. Put your kid early to bed and wake her up early so that she gets a leisurely time to finish her breakfast to keep herself full during the school hours.

Try out these simple steps to make your child love her school. Bid a tear taming good bye to your kid everyday when you drop your kid at the school gate.

It reminds me of my childhood when I see my child crying. I also used to cry while going to school. But slowly they will forget everything and enjoy schooling so be patient in the beginning.
