Morning Grumpies

Question

Our son is just shy of turning 5 and attends a full day preschool. He is not always in the best of moods in the morning when I (mom) drop him off and is sometimes clingy. He receives good behavior marks from school almost every day, and we really try to teach him to be respectful and have good manners, but most mornings when his teachers and other students greet him and are happy to see him, he either ignores them or gives a “not so sincere” good morning or hello.

I don’t know how to address this or if I even should at this age. Help!
