<p>Well my 3.5 yo DS has been going to 2xday per week montessori, It has been somewhat speratic do to him be sick off and on, so we are not really in a routine yet. But my son still cries everytime I have to go, says he does not want to stay there. Never wants to talk about school, says he dosen't like and comes out angry and dark. I conflicted, the teacher says he is fine within minutes after<em> </em>I leave. But i have noticed when I peak in on him during circile time he looks bored, he looks like he is not having fun! I rarely have anything for art works in his basket, and he has no interest in talking about his day. Also he I can tell he is really not conecting well with on of teachers he tries to avoid shaking her hand good bye. I can tell he is uncomfortable! My ds is al little bit more reserved and quiet than most kids, it takes him along time to warm up! It takes alot to motivate him in other things also, its just how he is. After talking with the teachers they want me to just leave him crying, When we are not at school we should not talk at all about school with him unless he brings it up and let him lead the talk. They feel maybe I'm projecting that he is not able to do this, and that he is picking up on my uneasyness. I'm not sure what to do</p>
<p>I not sure I can leave my kid their crying!  </p>

<p>Not able to do "this"? He's only 3.5 years old! Keep him home if you want to <span><img alt="thumb.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif"></span>.</p>

<p>I posted on your other thread,but just wanted to mention my ds was 5(going on 6) when he did the last 4 months of primary at Montessori. He like it.Not sure how he would have done at 3. I see the little ones and as I mentioned many do cry at drop off time,and not all are smiling at the end of the day either.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Take a few days off and see if he even wants to go back.Maybe he would like it better when he is 4 or 5.Maybe the teachers are not a good fit.</p>
