My son feels that he is the only that does not know how to do anything and he seems to like to...
play more than read and write .He wants me to be with at school all the time and I sit outside near his room ,but he always stands up to see if I am still there ,how can I convince him school is fun and education is important when he is only 6?
We had a child somewhat like your son and cried when we took her to school. When we began to talk to her about why is she always crying and her answer was she feared that we would not come back for her. She was also 6 years old. When we convinced her that we would not ever think to leave her and not come back for her. She stopped crying when we left at school.
I'm no parent, but I do teach elementary school and kindergarten.
Anyway, I think it might be best if you didn't stick around the school anymore. He might be upset for a couple of days, but he needs to get used to the fact that you will not always be around. I think after a couple of days, he'll start to get more interested in whats going on in school.
Don't worry about him not wanting to "learn." He's only 6. Kids at that age learn by playing. You don't pull out a text book and say "now do these equations and then write an essay."
When I teach my kids english, most of my teaching consists of games and playing. But believe me, they have all learned so much. My kids have gone from zero english ability to being able to say "hello, my name is... nice to meet you. good bye, see you later." and can do all the colors, shapes, alphabet and a bunch of animals. All this just from playing games and having fun.
There were a couple of kids that were like your son too. They didn't like being separated from their parents and didn't want to join in on the English lessons. But now, they are fully involved and have learned so much, it just took them an extra week or so.
my 2 cents.
As, a thirteen year old, I think i'll understand y he acts this way. He is 6, so its only normal that he doesn't like school (its also normal if he does) but, as a LITTLE kid he like to play more than learn- may i suggest to teach him to learn, but make it a fun way. Where he's having FUN, but also learning (dont tell him he's learning, until AFTER, because he will reject it before you start). Hope I helped...
Who says playing and learning have to be mutually exclusive? I was an extremely hyper kid with the attention span of a gnat, and I was homeschooled, leaving my mom with the responsibility of finding ways I was willing to learn. She ended up being able to turn just about everything into a game, and found ways to work off of my competitive nature to get me to work on my language arts and math. I really don't remember the challenged with learning to read, I was only three when I learned, but I do remember Mom always changing up the way we did classes and the types of activities we did in an effort to keep me interested and continuing to learn. Even when working in the context of a public school, there is plenty that you can do that will reward him for acquiring new skills. My own son has been making some nice progress on his reading and writing with a tool my mom never had...a V-Tech .

Playing is an integral part of childhood, it is through playing that we learn, Studying is also an integral part of childhood. When a child is in the school age (6-12 yrs. Old), he usually gets his kicks by being an achiever. It pleases him to be good at class and to know lots of...
