As a parent, the one thing that I want is for my children to be happy. Which is why I am really upset that Master Frugal is having problems settling in at school, his teacher had a word with me on Monday and said that he had had a few tears at school that day for apparently no reason. The same happened again yesterday.
I have asked him about it and he just said he was lonely and missed me! Miss Frugal also said that she has come out from lunch once or twice and seen him in tears (I’m not sure why she didn’t tell me before though).
When I dropped the kids off this morning, I had another word with his teacher and she said that she has paired him up with someone to play with and is keeping an eye on him. She also said that he plays with Miss Frugal at breaks and lunchtimes rather than his own classmates, which is not helping.
We have agreed to give it a week and then I will pop back in to see her to see if things have improved. I hope they are as I can’t stand thinking about him being miserable at school, especially as its something that is out of my control.
