As any parent who has ever left their child in the playground can testify - it’s a little nerve-wracking wondering how your child will cope without you.
But this video, posted to Reddit, shows the adorable reaction when this little boy returned to school after a week off ill.
Tyler had been away from his Kindergarten classmates for only a couple of days, but was greeted with hugs and affection.
Not to mention everyone complimenting him on his new hairstyle.
Tyler, who was initially cautious about going back into the classroom, doesn’t quite know how to react and remains quiet throughout the video.
The video has gathered over 800 comments in less than 24 hours - mainly adults wishing their friends were as kind as these children.
