Bribe them with something.

Fart about on Mumsnet and ignore the screaming from the living room (can you guess what I'm doing right now? )

We left for errand and school straight away. Later DS1 blamed me for the fact that he was being naughty as I wouldn't give him chance to say what was wrong. I told him I was always there to listen to him. He was still upset about 2 children, as he saw it, being mean to him at playtime yesterday. DS1 is a sensitive boy and I do get a bit frustrated that he won't do as we suggest, walk away, tell them to stop it/leave him alone, etc. He is going in to Juniors in September and I sometimes feel he will eaten alive. sad

Did your morning get better, SoupD?

My morning improved immensely. mainly because DS1 & 2 went to school and DD went to nursery!!

My stress was the usual "Please put your socks on. Please put your socks on. PUT YOUR SOCKS ON" routine. interspersed with fighting (all 3), staring into space (DS2) and covering legs with toothpaste (DD). [sigh]

I doubt your DS will be eaten alive. DS1 didn't seem to notice moving from infants to juniors and it didn't really seem much different. DS2 goes to juniors in Sept too. Luckily they're all one school so there's no change of site or anything.

DS1 found going from Reception to Year 1 a huge shock and is just finisheing year 2 so is still an infant. Sept is year 3 and he becomes a Junior. Part of his uniorm changes, he will need a proper school bag, he goes into school at a different place, has different play and lunch times, a new teacher. It is a lot for them.

I have had a meeting this morning about DD going in to Year 1 and I will have to big her up about what a big girl she is now she is in year 1 that she goes in to school on her own (same entrance she has seen her brother go in for the last 2 years so that helps) as I am not allowed in the school. She seems quite excited about going in to year one.
