A little background. DS has been home since birth with either me, DH or a sitter. He's a homebody & transitioning out the door has always been a major challenge. He's been doing a Waldorf parent-child class once a week since he was 20 months or so.
His teacher says he is very into his work during the day but is going through the normal transition challenges. Apparently she has some difficulty encouraging him to go to gym. She doesn't seem concerned though.
At home he gives conflicting reports - he doesn't like school, doesn't like gym, doesnt like leaving us, or all three. I'm not surprised at any of this. But my question is, how long should we expect the transition to last? Leaving in the morning involves many tears. Have we made a mistake in throwing him into a 5 day a week program?
