Will it be fine, will you like it, will you cry a lot ...? These are some of the concerns of the parents that, without realizing it, we transmit to the children and that can interfere in their prompt adaptation. Do not forget that children always have the antenna, and although it seems that they do not know what we say or our comments, they do.

In this situation, before the first time we leave our children in school, Cristina Gil Gil says that "parents have to be strong, I have seen parents go crying from class because their son was also crying. , dear parents, your children are in good hands, they just have to adapt to the new situation, just like you. "
