Anyone else slightly worried/sad about their child starting school?

My daughter doesn't go to school yet but I think I will be the same as you!
She will be starting school in term 4 - 6 days before she turns 5!! I am anxious about it just worrying that I won't be there if she hurts herself or someone is mean to her. BUT I know she is super excited already and I know I have to not show her I'm anxious or it will rub off on her.
Try not to worry and be very positive and happy about it for him, read books about starting school and talk about your positive experiences in school. There will be other kids there as 'little' as him and I'm sure the teachers are well prepared to deal with any issues when the young ones are just starting.
Good luck to you both!

I know the feeling laurea... Dd starts school on Monday too and I think I'm more nervous than she is - although she had a bit of a cry yesterday when she tried on her school dress after it had been hemmed, saying that she doesn't like her dress cos all of the other girls are prettier and bigger than she is... She is an extremely pretty little girl who I reckon will have FOB's height (he is 6'4") and is already fairly tall for her age...
I had a bit of a cry this morning (stupid hormones) cos its the last day of daycare for her. She started at that centre when she was 16 months old and is essentially one of the original kids from when the centre opened (3 months prior to us starting)

My little girl starts school on Monday 6th, and I am sick to the stomach with worry and sadness. I should say that my daughter has Autism as well as quite a few other medical issues, so this is a huge step for her and me. I am going to miss her so very much, but more than that, I am so anxious about how she's going to cope at school. I know she'll cope ok academically as she's reading fluently already and is so keen to learn, but the real worry is how she'll go socially. I just want her to be happy at school and to be accepted by the other children and not be bullied for being different. I'm an ex Prep teacher, so I know how cruel some children can be. To add to my stress, my daughter isn't toilet trained. The school isn't concerned about this, but I am so worried that she's going to dirty her pull-up and the children will tease her.
I'm dreading the 6th Feb - just never want it to arrive!!!

Hi there! My eldest started school this week too.. How did it go??!! I was ok until the first day, after I left and came home (with my youngest starting kindy for the firast time too) I had a big breakdown, but after the first week I think we are all adjusting ok and feeling a bit better, how are you feeling now?

My youngest starts officially on thursday so it hasn't happened for me yet. It's going to be so strange not having him with me all the time
But ultimately if he likes school and makes friends then i will be ok with that. If he hates school and doesn't want to go i will struggle with that i think..

I'm dreading it big time. I already have one child at school but it has not become any easier! Shes very excited and all set to go and very jealous that her big brother goes back to school on Thursday and she was to wait until Monday.
