Though it may not be believable, your preschooler kid could show signs of being grumpy or feeling depressed. A recent study concluded that if your little one is grumpy, he or she will not respond to teachers or peers similar to other kids of the same age group. It’s really unpleasant to know that your little one can feel grumpy. The key takeaway, however, is that when you feel your kid suffers from certain risk factors, he should receive proper help to come out of it.

Problem with completing work at school or focusing

Social and academic pressures can be a key cause of stress for your preschooler kid. Though extracurricular activities are necessary for your kid, when you over-schedule, your kid can feel anxious. You need to help your kid so that his priorities are balanced well.


When kids go through trauma or stress, this sleep-related problem can be a common problem with your kid. You can tell your kid tales about other children who feel like them to make him feel relaxed. It makes him feel that you know what he is going through.

Overreacting to even small problems

There are times when kids feel pressured to make their parents happy. In the process, they tend to become perfectionists and also start worrying continuously. Help your child in building up his confidence so that he can solve his problems without feeling grumpy.

Sleeping or eating disorders

Your kid may be under pressure, worry or feel restless, which causes havoc to his sleeping habits.

Alternatively, your preschool Singapore kid shows an abrupt change in his eating habits, it is a sign that he could be feeling stressed. You should get into the root cause of his stress so that his behavior can change for the better.

Withdrawal symptom from friends and family

The divorce of the parents, being bullied at school or shifting can make a preschool Singapore kid feel afraid or lonely. In such cases, maintain proper routines and lots of positive attention so that he can feel comfortable. You can contact your kid’s teacher when you feel he is having problems at school with his friends.


Kids who feel insecure and feel pressurized can miss out on toileting cues. Try to convince your preschooler kid that when he is faced with an accident, you are not furious with him. Meet his pediatrician so that the medical condition causing to wet his bed can be avoided.

Nursery schooling or early education seems like a milestone. The reason for this is it is always anticipated with huge excitement and great joy. But, then, it is also about a lot of tears, being uncertain and more heel digging. There is absolutely no crime in having all those emotions. The main reason for this anxiety that awakes as soon as they see the school gate is that the kids have no real idea of what is going to happen there.

For a certain amount of time, the kids are habituated to an environment that has their Mom, Dad, family, home, love, care, protection and all that they want. A sudden transition to an un-familiar atmosphere makes them go out of mood and unhappy. Relax parents! Check out what many nursery schools in Singapore are doing to make the transition easier.

Being consistent – Most moms try to be tough but then slide away as their tiny one squeezes those tears out of eyes. So, moms, it’s the primary duty to set true expectations to the kid about their pre-school or nursery. Highlight them in their regular discussion or tell them they are going to learn something new and it is a part of their routine that cannot be skipped. Keep the goodbyes and sweet talks short. That way, they understand that they are being eased into a new routine no matter what. And in the evening, when it is time to pick them up from their new school, remind them that mommy didn’t give up and she came as promised!

Teacher, the most important person – It is the teacher who plays a key role in identifying the student requirements and helping them in dealing with things. Since the teacher is new for the parent too, it is very much important to brief them on the kid and give important details that can help them understand the kid better. This way, the teacher can help make the schooling easy and fun for the kid instead of being unfamiliar. It is important to give details like their sleep pattern, food and toilet timings and not to forget to mention any medical issues. Also, brief on those techniques the family uses if the kid is upset or in other cases anxious. Sometimes, replication helps!

Comfort object – Yes! Never restrain the kid from carrying their favorite objects to school. Because, that gives them a sense of assurance that they are going to be okay at the pre-school or nursery in the presence of these objects. They feel so at home when they find these objects and also feel reassured they are at home with these objects. It can be a teddy, a mug, their favorite food, bottle, book or whatever it can be. Most schools are implementing this idea so that the kid is not scared in a new atmosphere and adapts easily.

To deal with these things is difficult but the idea of never giving up can help the kid get an opportunity of learning and living!
