Separation Anxiety - 4 Year Old throws upMy 4 year old son refuses to go to his Pre-K School. On the first day at school he was allright as his mother was with him through out. The very next day when his mom left him at the school and went out to join a meeting, he started crying and threw up within moments of her leaving.
Even in the past also when he was taken to the Play School, he would cry and vomit in the classroom. (He attended Play School last January for only 3 days)
Can any body help me with solution to this problem?

This is very common in children who have been at home with the parent until this age. My son also started pre school recently and he threw up for 4 weeks. First few days he threw up in the school, then he started throwing up at home before going to school. But now after 1.5 months, he's alright. I used to not give him any food before going to school and send some snacks with him so that if he feels like having some thing he could have at school. But he would refuse to eat or drink anything. I left him for only 3 hrs in school, so when I went to pick him up, I would take some milk and let him drink before bringing him home. Now he's out of it, so he has his b'fast and goes. Just give him some time and also don't give them anything if they are throwing up. in anycase once they throw up, nothing remains in the stomach. I'm sure your son will be alright in a few days.
