My little angel is starting school in september and i am really dreading it, i dont no if its normal but i am having sleepless nights and suffering sudden panick attacks, i know every child has to go to school but i just dont no how my daughter will cope she still wont socialise well with other kids despite going to nursery for nearly 2 years, she has been to two visits were she hung onto my leg and refused to talk to her teacher or just answered no to everything the teacher said.
i keep trying to encourage her despite my own resentment to sending her and try to make her excited about it but she still gets upset and says she doesnt want me to leave her there.
i know when i take her on her 1st day it will be almost impossible for her to leave me and i cant bare the thought of leaving her crying.
has anyone got any tips to make the run up to starting school easier for my daughter and me and any tips for that 1st day of school.
Also has anyone had a child that felt the same way as my daughter about going as i have spoke to some of the other mums and children and they seem so confident and excited. xxx

Just wondering how it all worked out for you?
My little girls starts school in 3 weeks ( I live in the Netherlands where tey have staggerd starts) and I am going throught the exact same thing as you were earlier this year. My little one is excited about going but I fear she will not be too happy when we actually get there. However it is more myself who is upset, nobody else I know has seemed to have the same issues but I am crying evrytime I think of her going to school. I'm not usually the crying type so this has come as a bit of a shock
