My 4 year old started pre-K last month. Everything was going ok...he never complained about going and enjoyed it. He only goes from 9:00am to 12:00pm, 3 hours. I take him and pick him up on Mondays, my Mom does it Tues.-Thurs., and my husband does it on Fridays.
A few weeks ago, he got sick and missed a whole week and 2 days of the next week. Since then, he does not want to go back. My Mom can't handle it and lets him stay home. I took him yesterday and ended up having to stay with him for 1 1/2 hours before he would let me leave. This morning, he pitched one and my Mom again let him stay home. His teachers have no idea what the problem is. All he says is that he hates school and he won't go back. Now, when I was with him yesterday, all the kids came up to him and talked to him. They played with him (and me!). He sat at his desk and did his work - no problem. He was fine when I picked him up.
I just don't get it. My Mom is 78 and just can't physically fight with him. I understand that. The whole situation is really stressing her out. I don't know what to do! We have all tried talking to him, making deals with him, bribing him, threatening him...nothing works. I can't be late to work everyday just to take him to school. I can't.
Pre-K isn't mandatory. Should I withdraw him or what??? Any advice???
I need help!
