Hello - I'm just wondering if anybody else has been in a similar situation to this.
Virtually all of my DD1's friends are starting school this year (next week in fact), but my DD is not. She is, by a matter of six hours, too young to start until August 2010. I'm in Scotland so there is only one start date each year, in August.
And I'm just starting to wonder how she will cope with both the loss of most of her friends throughout the day, and also wondering if those friends might start to think that DD is boring or babyish because she isn't at school yet.
I don't know why we have managed to find only friends who are slightly older than her, but we have!
Has anyone else experienced this kind of situation? Any ideas on what (if anything) to do?
Where did your DD find all her friends? If it was at a pre-school group then it will soon be full of kids who will be starting school when she will. She will soon make new friends, I wouldn't worry about it.
