How do you convince you kid to be left in school for awhile

I have a daughter who will attend her grade 1 in elementary,we are always together that I am afraid she will keep on crying if left. She is not used in mingling to other kids because we live in a compound where there are no kids to play with her.

It is really hard to convince a child to be left in school, I have a 4 year old pre-schooler son, what i did was, while we were travelling, i talked to him, set his mind that mama is not allowed inside the classroom, promised him that i just stay outside and be backed as soon as classes finish, he was reluctant and teary eyed, there were many what ifs at first.... that's our routine everyday after a week he used to it already.

well,I think I might as well follow what you did to your son but kids have different way of responding to the scenario of leaving them behind, however I must have a sturdy heart once crying is heard.thanks.
