    new school adaptation

    i am a new counselor in a newly founded school. so all
    staffs are new, all students are new. now, there is this
    one primary 1 student who always cries in the morning
    because he wants his mom to get inside the class with him.
    maybe this is quite normal considering that all are new for
    him, but it's already the second week and he's still doing
    it. i already tried to talk nicely to him, until i tried to
    playfully teased him ("come on, you're a primary student
    already.... you're not a kindergarten student anymore.").
    but he's still hugs his mom tightly and don't want to let
    her go. do any of you have advices for me to solve this?
