New Student in school & miserable
My daughter is in fifth grade and was just transferred to a new school. My husband & I tried a Charter School for her last year and although she made friends there, we did not like some of the things the school was or was not doing. This year, we decided to move her to the public school that is assigned to us for our area. My daughter is new there and it has been only been a week but she is a mess. Crying before and after school, telling me she is uncomfortable, she can't adjust, she has trouble making friends. She has done everything possible to get us to either keep her home or transfer her back to the Charter school. She has done this in the past with new situations....she did this in pre-school, kindergarten, and also when we recently moved. I did get the guidance counselors involved each time and the issues stopped. I am so frustrated and I'm also on the brink of tears myself which makes it hard to deal with this. Did I do the wrong thing by moving her even to a better school that we as parents feel more comfortable with? How can I help her get past all this unhappiness? I did call the guidance counselor today and I'm waiting to hear back from him. Can anyone give me some advice for a child this age? Thank you!!
