My son's Pre-K graduation ceremony this evening was a wake up call for me. I think something is wrong.
He didn't want to go to the Elem. school for the ceremony at all (he goes to a private school/daycare) because it was a new place. Then he refused to wear the cap & gown and refused to go on stage or go near it. He was crying but finally stood near the teacher near the stage and held his ears anytime his class sang songs or clapped. He was the only one out of 2 classes of kids reacting like this.
He wanted a Batman Character for his birthday and then was afraid of him when he came. He doesn't like to go to kids birthday parties in his class. We make him go but he prefers to watch rather than interact. He wants to leave the second it get's too noisy but sometimes he'll stick around and enjoy some cake. He is scared of Motorcycles, Hand dryers in the bathroom and won't to see a movie in the theater because it's too noisy. I finally got him to be ok with haircuts with the clippers but I can tell he his scared.
He will start Public school Kindergarten in the Fall and I'm nervous that he will have a meltdown.
Where do I start? What are my best resources?
