It's okay, Max. Mommy needs to go and you need to stay. You love school.
Oh dear, Max I see how upset you are. Come take my hand and I will help you inside.
No mommy, no mommy, no, no! I want to stay with you!
I have a hard time coming to school sometimes, too. I just want to be around my kids so much I have a cry sometimes too. Would you like to sit in my chair at my desk and read a 'teacher gem' or do some buddy reading with a friend to help you feel better?
Yes I would like to sit at your desk please.
When you are back in the green zone, Max, you can join us. Take you time.
