6 year doesn't want to go to school

My 6 year old has started crying in the morning and she doesn't want to go the school. Does anyone have any advice? I've talked to her and she said that she misses us and it's to long of a day. Is this just a phase? Please respond if anyone has gone through this, it's very stressful and upsetting for me because I don't know what to do.

My DD used to do that a lot back in Kindy.. I'd say she would cry almost every day for over half of the year when I walked her to school. :o( It broke my heart but of course, 30 seconds later she was just fine and having fun. She's only had a few hard days this year.

And I posted in the other section but a week ago she lied and said that she was sick when she wasn't because she wanted to stay home with me.

I always make sure to not mention anything "fun" I did during the day or she gets upset.. even grocery shopping. If it is mentioned I have to say it was boring. LOL It's getting better though in that she doesn't mind as much. I let her know that we and her brothers miss her too..

Maybe you could ask more questions.. is she having a hard time with friends or anything? You could even send a note to her teacher so they know what is going on. Maybe just the extra "I'm so happy to see you today" would help her.

Good luck!
