Juanita112 asks:

My 10 years old son doesn't like his new school.

We just moved our 5th grader (gifted) to an excellent charter school in the area where my oldest (16) also attends.  Our 5th grader is very easy going, friendly, always happy and well liked by others but  he is not happy with the recent school change. After the first day of school he cried all evening saying that he doesn't like the school setting and that he misses his old friends and teachers.  He approached a couple of kids to make friends but they did not welcome him.  He tried to share snacks trying to make friends but it didn't work. This new school is proven to be an excellent school and it's very hard to get in it (lottery). I didn't want to wait until middle school to make the change but it breaks my heart to see him crying because he truly is a wonderful child in all aspects.  The school year just started but will this stage pass or should I start considering changing him back to his old school? Thanks in advance for your help.
