    I don't really have any advice as I'm going through the same with my 5.5 year old boy who's also just started to. Hopefully there'll be some mums of older kids with some insider knowledge.

    Default Wits end with 5.5 year old DD

    This is happening with one of my friends sons who started school this year - he's 5.5 and the school counsellor said that as school is such a big change for him ( they also have 34 kids in one class) it can be overwhelming and even though he's good in school he takes out his anxiety and frustration at home , plus is upset that his brothers get to stay home or go to pre school and he has to go to big school , she was told to try get him to bed earlier ( he might be more tired from school) and just be very big on being positive , " I know you've had a big day and are upset but we have to leave the park now to get home for dinner, maybe next time we can stay longer, thanks for understanding " type of thing - as by fighting him on it won't work but will just increase his anger, they said it's just an adjustment phase and he should come out of it soon , hopefully it's the same for your DD
