My son is 7 years old. He is in gred 1 & have already spent half a year in school. Of lately, he has develope a fear of separation from either myself and his dad. He would keep asking the same question like when or how long then he finishes school and see us. He loves school but will create a scene when we send him off. We keep assuring him that we'll be there to fetch him and the school is safe. THere's no evidence that he was bully or teachers pick on him. Infact, he's popular among them before the semester break about 2 weeks ago (it began last week after the school reopens). I'm proud to say that he does well in school, his results were all A's.
He is our only son and we love him from day 1 when he was born. Both of us have flexible working hours, we spend alot of time together i.e. holidays, playing & sleeping as well. He is well rewarded with toys & treats. Generally, we can name ourselves no.1 PARENT. We spend time together and do most things together...no neglections, we listen, we share our happening & views...even we are patience to explain to him.
His changed behaviour is honestly worrying and fearsome to us. Though we keep reminding him we love him, be there when he finishes school, help with his work, be ther during breaks.. but still he continues to cry during classes & kept telling his teacher he misses us.
Please help.. what should we do?
