Naomi's first school experience....

I feel so warm with all the welcome back wishes. :) so touched. Thanks for visiting leh.

Naomi will be 2 years and 10 months old in another few days time. She is quite a fast learner but a bit over attach to me. I have tried to send her to pre-school and it really really traumatized her. The pre school teacher kept saying I should leave her and just go away. It broke my heart to see her screaming and crying at the gate when I returned 1 hour later. She even woke up in the middle of the night and asked if she need to be in school alone again. Poor baby, I have no heart to continue her in the school, so I withdraw her from school after 3 days trial. I seriously think pre-school shouldn't be so stressful. It should be a place she looks forward to be everyday. A lot of people said I wasn't tough enough, a lot of them think I should let her continue for at least a week or two, but it's not a must for her to go to school right? I really couldn't bear her midnight cry saying she doesn't want to be in school alone. So be it lar, sigh....

I was talking to my friend who runs a kindy, she told me I shouldn't have left her and go all of sudden. I should be there with her for at least 1 week, to let her get use to the environment and to look for the sense of security... BUT it was the school PRINCIPAL that told me to leave her!!!! I picked the wrong school after doing all the visiting to a few of them! :(

Now, whenever I told her that "look, that jie jie is going to school... it is so much fun going to school..." and she will answer "but I like to stay home with mummy.... I don't have to go to school...." sigh...

So, We shall try again soon or next year, and definitely another school....
