Suggestions on how to support my daughter?
My four-year-old started preschool in August. She’s always been an introvert so I knew adjusting to preschool would be a challenge for her. She has also always been the type of child that wants to observe what’s going on and once she’s comfortable will participate.She’s now been in school for four months and the teacher said she still having a really hard time. The teacher said most of the time my daughter doesn’t want to participate in activities and just sits on the sideline and watches. They have a gymnastics teacher come once a week and the teacher led my daughter into the group and my daughter started crying so they let her just sit and watch while everybody else did the gymnastics routine. When we go to the park or play with the neighbor kids my daughter does fine socializing it’s just the large group she’s having a really hard time with. When I asked my daughter about school she just says that it’s so loud and the kids are running around being crazy, and she also says there’s so much going on so it sounds like she is just overwhelmed.She’s going to start kindergarten in the fall so I was just looking for tips from parents who have been through something similar about how they helped there their little one adjust to elementary school.
