My daughter was attending a high known preparatory academy in which she was in a waiting list for. I had to withdraw my daughter from that A school to place her in Frank Borman Elementary. At the A school the assistant Principal kept calling my Husband and myself at every day since the day our daughter started school there. She stated that our daughter needs to be medicated due to she suffers from separation anxiety. Separation Anxiety? Really? I refuse to jump into any conclusion, so my husband and I decided to simply switch schools, since the A school was not willing to help us out by just keeping her in class. It seem as if our 5 year old daughter out smarted them and knew that if she would cry they would immediately call us. They did not want to deal with her. 1 in 7 kids have separation anxiety, its normal Per our pediatrician, you simply need to be more patient with the child and do not punish them because this only creats more stress to them. Our 5 year old daughter that refuse to go to school, attends Frank Borman Elementary and is happy to go to school every day. She now has 5 friends, and her teacher Mrs. Perez is awesome.
