These Kids Just Realized Their Moms Were Dropping Them Off And It’s The Most Heartbreaking / Cutest Thing Ever

When I got dropped off at school on my first day of preschool, I threw myself to the floor, started yelling, crying and wouldn’t let go of my mom’s legs when she was trying to leave. Yup, I threw major fits. And I know I’m not the only one. Check out how other pre-schoolers are reacting on their first day of school once they find out that their moms can’t stay with them for the day…

Remember this kid that went viral two years ago?

On his first day of preschool, Andrew Macias, was interviewed and asked if he was going to miss his mom. He responded, “no,” and nervously laughed about it. But then that laugh immediately turned into a cry as he realized that he actually was going to miss his mom.

Well, kids are having similar reactions to their first day of school this year.


Pobrecita.

And teachers are struggling trying to pretend everything is okay.

Just smile and nod, smile and nod.

Some pre-schoolers already know that crying won’t solve anything.

She already knows what’s up.

While other pre-schoolers are there to offer moral support throughout these hard times.

Looks like this little girl is going to become her pre-school BFF.

Perhaps some of these kids woke up and hopped into the car thinking they were on their way to Disneyland.

His face expression changed really quick.

Because their smiles quickly turned upside down when they realized they were on their way to learn and be educated… ?

This kid is so mad, his eyebrows are about to fall off.

You can tell how excited they are about having to be at school five days a week, from 9 to 3. ☺️

He’s like, “Noooo mamá porque me haces estooooooo.” Same, kid. Same.

These kids couldn’t be more happy about having to play together and share the toys.

It looks like this little girl isn’t a huge fan of “sharing is caring.”

Ultimately, no matter how hard these preschoolers try to handle their emotions and keep it together on their first day of school…

Being an adult has me like…

This is me.

Truth is, it feels like the end of the world as soon as they see their mommy leave.

This was soooo me on my first day of school. But hey, who wouldn’t miss being at home all day with their mom instead of being stuck at school (or work) with kids you don’t know?

An Adorable Moment Is Making The Rounds After An 8-Year-Old Boy Consoled His Crying Classmate With Autism On The First Day Of School

An Adorable Moment Is Making The Rounds After An 8-Year-Old Boy Consoled His Crying Classmate With Autism On The First Day Of School

The first day of school jitters can affect different people in different ways. For young children, this is especially true. While some kids might feel excited to start the new year in a new classroom, with a new class schedule, teachers, and new friends — others are completely terrified of the change. And it’s completely okay. So when an 8-year-old boy helped his classmate deal with the first day of school jitters by holding his hand as they both walked into school, our hearts couldn’t help but melt. 

On August 14, a photo of 8-year-old Christian Moore holding his classmate’s hand, Connor Crites, during their first day of the second grade at the Minneha Elementary School in Wichita, Kansas. It was the purest moment on the internet in weeks.

Crites told local reporters that he was having a difficult day and that his classmate, Christian Moore, extended his hand to him in a kind gesture. “He was kind to me,” the second-grader told KAKE. “I started crying and then he helped me. And, I was happy. He found me and held my hand and I got happy ears.” 

Moore’s mother, the second-grader who reached out to Crites after he saw he was struggling during his first day of school, wrote on Facebook that she was “so proud of her son.” 

“[He saw] a kid balled up into a corner crying, so he went to console him, grabbed his hand and walked him inside of the school! It is an honor to raise such a loving, compassionate child! He’s a kid with a Big heart, the first day of school started off write, she wrote in the caption.” 

While this is such a simple and sweet gesture, it’s important to highlight the importance of this because we don’t see it often.

Sometimes children aren’t super comfortable with showing a softer side, especially in school, so to see this happen among two young boys gives a bit of hope that we can see more and more moments like this.

Moore’s Facebook photo quickly gained a lot of attention and has been shared over 27,000 times in a matter of days. It’s also gotten over 21,000 likes and over 7,000 comments. 

Folks shared their positive thoughts in Moore’s Facebook comments calling the moment “beautiful” and other comments told the mother that the photo warmed their hearts.

One commentator said the 8-year-old’s actions were a testament to what a wonderful mother she is. (We definitely agree with that!)

Other people continued to root him on and express how it makes them happy to see young kids support each other in this way.

After all, it shows our future generations supporting one another. We’re so glad that other young kids who might come across this post will see how they, too, can show kindness through their actions in someone else’s moment of need. It doesn’t take a lot to be kind or lend a helping hand, and 8-year-old Christian Moore is a perfect example of that.

Most importantly, however, April Crites, the mother of the other boy in the photo, also came across the post.

“Tell your son I said thank you so very much! That little boy he helped is my son and is autistic,” Crites commented on Moore’s post, according to KWCH-TV. “I worry every day that he is going to get bullied for being different and your son just absolutely warmed my heart. If there were more children like him I wouldn’t worry about such things.” 

No parent should have to live with that fear when sending his/her daughter/son to school every morning. Children should be taught to be kind to one another instead of bully each other. So, we’re definitely glad that there are parents raising their kids to act out of compassion and empathy first and foremost, like those of 8-year-old Christian Moore. 

According to KWCH-TV, Crites, the mother of the boy who was feeling anxious on his first day of school, struggles with speech. She also hopes that this could be the start of a beautiful friendship between the two boys after sharing this moment together. 

Crite’s mother also went on comment on Moore’s Facebook post that “it doesn’t matter color, it doesn’t matter gender, it doesn’t matter disability, and it doesn’t matter anything, just be kind, open your heart… it’s what we need in this world.” 

We can totally get behind this sentiment. This moment should serve as an example and as a testament to what kindness can do.

Check Out These Hilarious Punishments Our Fierce Readers Shared From Their Childhoods

When we look back on our childhoods, we had lots of great times. Hanging out with our primos, being spoiled by our abuelas, watching Saturday morning cartoons and dancing our hearts out at quinces are just a few of our favorite memories from growing up. However, it wasn’t always fun and games. We’d be irresponsible if we didn’t give credit to some of the hilarious ways our parents kept us in line as well. At the time, some threats were straight-up horrifying but now they’re pretty funny. Who knows, maybe we’ll even use some of these lines on our own kids one day. 

With these strange and funny punishments in mind, we asked our FIERCE readers what sort of weird warnings their parents issued to them while growing up and we can’t stop laughing over these responses. Here are some of the funniest:

1. Hug it out.
