This is not going to sound good.

This is so inappropriate, prejudicial, and likely sexist of me but I am having a really hard time. My daughters preschool (she’s 2.5) has hired a male teacher. They’ve done this before but the male teachers have always ended up in the older wing. They’ve hired one now for my daughters age group and I just don’t feel okay about it. I know, I know. I KNOW. but I’m still having a hard time. I gues... More

    My feeling about this is, maybe this teacher is great but if you have this much stress about it, just ask to have your child moved. It isn't a judgement on this guy in particular, it is just what you need to feel safe during the day when your child is there. Yes, there are a lot of amazing male preschool teachers. But also yes trauma is real and it affects you. So just own that it affects y... More

    Hi all, thanks again for everyone’s kind words and support. I ended up not having to talk to anyone because the day after the teacher was hired he quit, citing familial issues. I hope everything is okay with him. My daughter is more verbal daily and I will trust the people I leave her with more once she transitions up to preschool. If before then a male teacher is hired for her room I’ll reques... More

This last week he started sobbing... More

    Your child just turned three. Is there a reason you felt he should attend preschool now instead of waiting until Sept 2020? If you are a stay at home mom, and it is causing him distress you may want to reconsider waiting a few more months. The little guy might not be ready for it just yet. You will be surprised how much he will change in nine months. ❤️❤️

Crying fits at day care

So my step son just started a day care/preschool setting this week. Every morning at drop off and every afternoon at pick up, he has these crying fits that range from controllable to uncontrollable. He will either just cry and say no or he will drop himself on the floor and flail his arms and legs (side note: he only does that fit when his mom drops him off). I’m asking for suggestions on ho...

    Be confident yourself (if you believe in the environment and staff) and the hardest thing is don’t linger. Talk ahead of expectations and the fun things he might do. At the end of the day ask him questions like “what was the best/ hardest thing about today. How did you show kindness. How did you show kindness.” Reward when drop off and pick up are positive. Tell him at pick up that (favorite t... More

    our preschool suggested we pick up this book to read with our kids to get them used to some kind of dropoff ritual for consistency:
