First time going to school, preschool children “frustrate” in the middle of class, parents have to take a break from work to pick them up
“This morning, on the way to school, baby Dau always talked about his teacher and classmates. He was excited to share candy with Bao Nam, Hoang Linh, Nhat Bach. But when he arrived at the school gate, he saw Many strangers, confidence and excitement completely disappeared, replaced by tears. Baby Dau held his mother’s hand and cried louder and louder.” Ms. Nguyen Thi Mai Loan (30 years old, Hoang Mai, Hanoi) recounted her 4-year-old daughter’s first class visit after nearly a year off.
Dau’s school will be closed from May 2021. Long break, baby just hangs around at home making friends with computers, youtube, toys. When she heard the news that Hanoi allowed schools to reopen, Ms. Loan was very happy. For me, this is a special first day of school for my child. She also determined that opening schools, the risk of children contracting COVID-19 is inevitable.
Before going to school, she and her husband often did ideological work for their children. Last night, she kept talking to her children to prepare mentally for class. “I nodded in agreement to go to school, but this morning I burst into tears in the middle of the schoolyard. Even when brought near the classroom door, the child grabbed his mother’s hand and ran to the stone bench to hide, demanding to go home. I ran after him, coaxing him, and keeping his face serious, so that he would listen and not cry out loud.said the 30-year-old mother.
The child was lying on the schoolyard and refused to go to class, so she had to ask for the help of two teachers. After a while of struggling, baby Dau also obeyed, followed her to class, no longer asked to return. Seeing her daughter crying in class, Ms. Loan did not immediately return but stood outside the classroom to watch. About 30 minutes later, I started getting used to the teacher and recognized my best friend. Only then did Ms. Loan feel secure to leave.
“Just brought to the school gate, before getting off the bus, baby Thuc (3 years old) burst into tears “Mom, I want to stay home.” The teacher quickly took her to class. I also quickly turned the car around and left, no dare to look back.” Ms. Tran Bao Nhung (32 years old, Nam Tu Liem, Hanoi).
But only 15 minutes later, she received a call from the teacher to pick up the baby because the baby wouldn’t stop crying. She regretfully asked to take a break from work because this morning her grandparents returned home early, her husband was on a business trip, and there was no one at home to look after her.
Going to school, seeing her child crying, lying in the hallway, determined not to go to class, sweaty, messy clothes, she was both angry and sorry for her child. Staying at home for too long makes Thuc shy, scared and not as confident as before.
The first day of the new class of 4-year-old Hoang Bach was also difficult and “tears”. At the classroom door, Pham Thi Yen’s daughter (29 years old, Hai Ba Trung, Hanoi) refused to let go of her mother. The two teachers comforted, the boy was drenched in sweat, but the boy insisted on not going to class. Bach also pulled his mother’s hand to ask to go home.
With no other choice, Yen was forced to ask the teacher to let her in the class and play with her child for a while. At the school gate, she also cried because she loved her child. All morning, she continuously watched the camera in her child’s class. I hope that in the following school days, she will gradually get used to her teachers and friends, no longer cry like the first time.
