Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Children aged 5 years, usually psychic and social abilities are increasingly developing. Social abilities in interacting with the environment and playing with friends his age become fun for him alone, so providing supervision, a good playing environment, with friends who support each other will help the development of social and psychological interaction of children better.
In children aged 5 years, social development and interaction of children will continue to develop, such as:
1. love to gather with peers
2. happy to be recognized in the group
3. want to obey his will
4. likes to act, dance, or sing
5. is sufficiently independent in a public place or the surrounding environment
6. fighting with friends even though it rarely happens
In connection with your question, there is a willingness of children who want to be accompanied at school is a natural thing to happen to children at the early school age. When children want to be close to parents, want to be noticed by parents, want to be accompanied by parents, or want to continue playing with parents, these are things that are naturally encountered, so this condition needs to be supported by parents so that adjusting children's independence can be understood; besides that parents continue to give understanding to the child of this courage, independence. Thus, the process of independence and self confidence of children is increasing and helps him to socialize with friends and the environment.
Some things might also trigger these complaints, such as a child having had a fight with a friend, crying in class without a companion (parents), the fear felt while attending school. What parents can do is follow this adjustment period with patience. Not all children will be willing and brave to be left alone at school, or certain times. So by accompanying, watching over the next few days, it is hoped that your child will be calmer and feel safe during the learning process at school. Then in a few days or within 2 weeks your child can be left while attending school.
You can also provide a stimulus gift that you give, if your child wants to be left while attending school. However, this method should be done after your business fails while accompanying him in the next few days or weeks.
Discuss with the supervising teacher at your child's school or discuss with a psychologist regarding the social development of children at school, so you get the right information relating to your child's adjustment in school.
