My son Aiden ran away from school again today. I am heartbroken that my five year old gets upset enough at school that he actually runs away.
He told me that he had fun this morning but then he got in trouble for not saying nice words. Then during lunch he hid under a play structure until all the kids and supervisors had gone back inside and then he ran home because he missed me too much. Keep in mind it is -35 degrees Celsius here today. Luckily he was all dressed in his snowsuit and we only live a couple blocks from the school.
His teacher called our house practically in tears looking for him.
I walked him back to school and we talked with his teacher. As I have mentioned before I absolutely ADORE Aiden's teacher. She is phenomenal. The problem with school is certainly NOT his teacher. I just want to be clear about that. I think she is doing an amazing job.
Anyway, I had to leave him there with him fighting off tears.
It really does break my heart. I feel so very sad.
Hey. Let’s be friends.
