DON'T BRIBE HER!! I've been a volunteer at Head Start for years. That dollar becomes a big deal at school. She has one. They don't. She worries about it all day in her cubbie. Someone might want to take it.
Try pictures. Any teacher would understand. Laminate a page of family photos. Or tape them to a box that she can carry around. Also, if she has a blanket you can cut a piece for her to carry in her pocket. (My son would have died if you cut his blanket)
But all in all, she's going to be fine. The sooner you leave the sooner the teachers and volunteers can get her distracted.
Hang in there!! It's tougher on the caregivers than the kids.View Thread
