Lisa @ School Family
Love the art idea TrueBella! Another way that worked for my kids was to role play with stuffed animals. We could would pretend they were at school and have them act out different scenes -- often the animals told me things that my kids were not able to ; ) I think that TB is right that Kindergarten is a huge transition, even if kids went to daycare of preschool. So much is expected of Kindergarteners these days and they feel it in their little bodies but they don't no what to do with the stress... so they fall apart at home. Doesn't make it easy on you but I find if I have an inkling about why my kids are emotional, it helps me deal with it.
