Kindergartener who hates school
10/04/2010 at 21:35 PM

My granddaughter is 5 years old. She went to 3 and 4 year old preschool and we never had a problem. She is very smart and does the work that is asked of her. She excels in everything she does. We have had about 1½ months of Kindergarten this year and it is tearing me up. When I wake her in the morning, she cries that she doesnt want to go to school. I ask her why and she says because she doesnt like PE. I actually have to dress her kicking and screaming and pull her off me to put her on the bus. When I pick her up from school until bedtime she worries constantly about the next day. Does she have school?? She will ask me this question at least twenty times every evening. When I say yes she starts her worrying and crying again. She bites her nails and worries probably 4-6 hours every evening about what tomorrow brings. It is wearing me out. She has asthma and when she spends that much time crying it causes her to have alot of mucus buildup. So when she finally does get to sleep it doesnt take long until she is up wheezing and coughing and vomiting mucus all night. So we worry all day and are up all night with this problem. I have even been considering home schooling her. I have taken her from one school and moved her to another already this year and I am having the same issue there. It all seems to stem from PE class. Please anyone have any suggestions??!!
