My daughter turns 5 over the summer so she’s eligible to start kindergarten in the fall. I’m now curious whether she might benefit from another year of preschool instead. What could your child do right before they entered K? Read and write? Just recognize letters and write only a few words? Would be helpful to also hear from other summer birthday parents.
My child does well in class. Participates, understands and overall does well but on tests and one on one she freezes and bombs. How do I help her get better? She gets tutoring and pulled from classroom. Her teacher seems unapproachable. She does not offer all the other things the other teachers do. My daughter struggles with reading and math and has hot and cold days. I feel like such a bad mom... More

So my 7 yr old knows about how the baby grows and is born but she just asked me how the baby gets into the mommy. She already knows it has something to do with the daddy. I was taken by surprise by this question and luckily was able to distract her off topic easily but I know she’ll ask again. Have any of you had to answer this question from a seven year old any advice?
Great Raising! I want to homeschool my two little girls in the near future. I am a single parent and I work overnight for now. It seems really hard to do. Are there any moms out there that are single and homeschool? If so please share any ideas, tips and inspiration. Thank you in advance
Hello ladies, i have a question. My 1st grader came home today saying her teacher is asking kids to bring money to school for her conference day dinner. I am new to the USA, and that sounds a little bit weird to me, please explain if this is a normal thing? And how much should we give? Thank you so much for answering.
My 4 year old daughter has started mentioning a lot the difference between her sister's skin color and her own skin color. Her sister has darker skin than her and my 4 year old daughter has very very pale skin. She will make comments like "we aren't twins because my sister has dark skin and I have light skin". I don't know why she always brings it up. I guess she just noti... More
How do I deal with my kid's 1st grade teacher who corrected her math homework and made several mistakes. I noticed that when I checked. When my kid took the homework to school again so the teacher could explain why she marked it wrong, the teacher again made several mistakes explaining and again gave wrong answers. Should I just leave it or send my kid to school again with the same homework? 🤔
My daughter is 4 years old and has been in a day care program for the past two years. She loves to learn and has the tendency to pick things up quickly. I do not want to send her to public school. I was raised in the public school system (my mom is a teacher) and I want to work with a system that has more control over the curriculum and the teachers are able to adjust their teaching to the chil...

I am currently about to start (pre reqs) nursing school and I’m a sahm. Recently I received a job offer that pays decent but 10:30am-7pm which I really have to work around with class schedule. I can do it so I might take an online class and a very early class or go on Saturday as well. Pro of going back to work: making my own money Con: conflicts with class and I’ll be away from the my babi... More
