Starting school is a BIG deal for children AND their parents! I think on that first day when mom or dad leave their kid with their 1st grade school class teacher for the first time, both parent and child are in tears. It’s a real wrench. My daughters first day wasn’t so bad though as I prepared myself and made sure she was excited and confident. I was allowed to spend a little time settling her into her new class before I had to leave. My son was less confident and took a while settling into nursery school so I was worried about that first grade start date. It was a different school though and he only had half a day to begin with, this eased him into the new routine and he was very confident. I was a very proud mom on both occasions.
