My Kid Doesn’t Want To Go To School – Daily Dilemma

The “Daily Dilemma” on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone’s problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don’t have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can’t agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we’d love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.

Here is today’s dilemma:

Here we are, the first week in school and already my son doesn’t want to go. he’s a first grader. He started crying 2 days before school started, and continues to do it every nite. He is just a shy kid, and has a hard time adjusting to new situations, I know he will be ok in a week or so.

This is where my husband and I have a huge conflict. It’s the typical fight. He says “make him go”. “Stop your crying and don’t be such a sissy”. Those kind of comments all the time. I am too much the opposite way. I try to understand him and comfort him and in fact, I told him he only had to go a half day for the first week until he got used to it.

He thinks I’m ruining him. And I think his way of disciplining kids may have worked 40 years ago but not now.

How would you handle this situation?
