ds, who will be three at the end of this month has been attending a great reggio school since mid Jan T/Th for a total of 7 hours a week. after the initial adjustment period of a couple weeks, he loved it, had great things to say about it and happily went to school. Recently, this has changed, :( . when i drop him off now, he is reluctant and when i pick him up, he cries :( His teacher says he cries on and off but will participate in activities, and has also been only picking at his lunch.
I have asked the teacher if there have been any issues or anythinng with other children and she said no, I asked ds and he said the same. There has been a fair amount going on in our little family and i am pretty sure that is where this new anxiety is coming from. ds recently had oral surgery, his first hair cut and I nightweaned him per dr jay gordon's plan, and he hasn't quite adjusted yet. he will still wake in the middle of the night sometimes ask for milk and is very difficult to settle down when I say no! other nights he doesn't wake until the "right" time. AND dh is out of town until the middle of the month!
I am sure that all of these events have created the issue at school. ds says that he doesn't want to go to school, that school is closed , that i don't need to pack his lunch box...
I am not sure how to handle this, part of me thinks this too shall pass, that maybe i should keep sending him to help him feel secure at school again. the other part think maybe i ought to pull him out until he is better acclimated to everything an things have settled down.
i am struggling to figure this all out
any advice/suggestions/ ideas are welcomed
