Anyway ... here's a recap of what his first week was like.
I took him to school every morning. The first morning, I stayed with him in school but on the second to fourth day, I left him alone. I had to. He has to learn that I won't be there in school with him all the time.
I worried. I wasn't sure if he could make friends since he's an only child and he doesn't really interact well with other kids. I worried that he might not be able to cope with the lessons because he skipped two levels. I was worried that he could be bullied ... I worried worried worried.
I'm happy that I worried for nothing. He has friends and he's behaved. He also has confidence in himself because he would volunteer to recite and write on the board. He has discipline enough that he is able to tell his classmates that they should behave.
