I dont remember, but my mom used to say, i was so stubborn on the first day of joining the school, primary class. I cried like a yell for leaving away my mom and our teachers carried me inside the class, gave me chocolates and toys to cool me up. lol. How about you friends, are you good like me or bad , share with me

I enjoyed my school and college days, since I didn't keep any arrears :-)

I did not. When i was a child. There was not a kindergarten in our village. So when i was seven years old, i went to the primary school. I loved going to school.

I still remember the first day i was left in school. I was crying the whole day until the scholl hours. My parents got scared of my behavior. but then it got used to it .My teachers used to console me by giving some snacks and cookies. I felt very bad when that teacher left my school when iam in grade II . Thanks for this topic as it was very nostalgic for everyone.

When I saw other kids crying I had to control my tears and no sooner my older sister came to pick me up I told her that I had not cried and when I reached home that was the song telling everybody that I did not cry!!

I did not. I have felt the sense of independence back when I was in kindergarten. I can manage eating by myself and those things other big guys can do.

I do remember still the very first time i attended my kindergarten school and it was very hard for me to stay calm with the new environment i'm into. As a child i used to playing a lot from morning to evening, my mother never scolded me when i go out and play with all my might together with my cousins and playmates. So when i finally stepped on my very first classroom, i felt enclosed and surrounded by different faces that's why i cried so much that's why my teacher allowed me to seat beside her in front of the class.

I don't really remember whether I cried or not during my first day at school. I guess I did, because I have seen many toddlers cry on their first day because their parents have to leave them behind in the school. It's expected as they have never experienced being away from their parents for a few hours, and having to be in an unfamiliar environment all by themselves. But things improved after a week or so, and then they don't cry anymore.

I remembered vividly, during my first day in Kindergarten class, I was so scared being left behind by my mom and dad. I cried my lungs out, not caring that most of my classmates are looking at me, threw tantrums until the teacher let my mom inside the room. That seemed to calm me down. But every time she goes away, I would cry loudly! My teacher was so frustrated with me, she locked the doors. I couldn't forget that.
