My little man did! Who else?
My boy started the 3yo class at day care and has cried for the first three days. Any tips of helping him though this? He seemed to calm down 2-3 minutes after we leave and has a good day in class but he is anxious at home about it. “My new class is not my favorite”. The interesting part is that he knows 80% if the kids as they had graduated to that class over the last few months.
My 2 year old daughter has been in daycare for over 6 months and still cries when i drop her off. She doesn't go to the teachers either but when I leave and I check the cameras she isn't crying anymore. I see her playing normally with other kids. Any suggestions on what I can do to make it easier on her and me when she is being dropped off? Thank you!
So my kid is 2yrs old and will turn 3 this Sept. Starting preschool this year would mean he goes to the 2's class. So I'm stuck between sending him this year or the next. (He goes to a homedaycare /play group ). With kids who are fall born, what's ideal to do? Do you get them in school as they are almost 3, or do you wait as strting now would mean 3 yrs of preschool before Kindergarten.
I was pretty shocked to find some crayons in this list of school supplies that have toxic chemicals in them. “This box set, purchased at Dollar Tree, has traces of asbestos, the report found. The chemical can appear in the talc that is used in crayon manufacturing, according to the report.” https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/08/health/dangerous-chemicals-school-supplies-trnd/index.html
Any of you moms are taking any online college courses while being a mommy to more than one child? I have 4 children (5,6,2,1) all boys. I am contemplating returning to college and need some advice on how to manage school and small children. Afraid I won’t be able to do both but I wanna really try... any advice will be greatly appreciated
My husband is from El Salvador and speaks fluent Spanish/English. I want our 20 month old daughter to learn Spanish as well. However, there are a few problems: 1. I am a stay at home mom, so she is around me 24/7; and I am only fluent in English. I cannot afford someone to babysit while I go take classes; nor do I have the family support. 2. My husband is almost never home due to his grave shif... More

Lately it has been directed towards her reading assignments, I understand she has a hard time grasping the questions but I work with her through them re-wording them so she can understand better. But she doesnt even try she just gets upsets and starts crying! I try to prompt her into telling me where exac... More
My Daughters pediatrician always talks about the great things they do for speech delays in public school. My 3 Year old has already been to private pre k and I plan on sending her there again, I just want a second opinion.
This is something that is working right now. I bring my son to our local library daily. He knows the staff and is comfortable with this location. I allow him to pick out three books on his own and I pick out two that would be new materials for him. It worked today like a charm. He picked out one book independently and I picked out one of my choosing. He was upset about my choice at first bu... More
These little workbooks are super cool. Definitely age/learning skill appropriate, nicely illustrated and easy to teach/learn. Very complete and they were just a dollar each! I don’t recall how much the puzzles were but it couldn’t have been over 3 dollars. I get excited when I find things like this for my kiddos and thought I’d share.
so we just found out from the pediatrician today that my 4 yr old stepson shows many signs of autism and has suggested further testing. He also said that we may want to look into a special needs school as opposed to mainsteam public school. Has anyone else used a special school vs a public school?
Hi! We moved to the US almost 2 months ago from Chile (me, my husband, and our 28 month old daughter). I don't know much about the educational system and I want to know a little more. Are there public/free daycares or preschools? What age do they start mandatory education? Etc etc Thanks!
Looking for a somewhat easy read since my brain is usually a little fried at night. Something starting from 1 year and on preferred but if it has a little bit of the first year too then it’s ok. Thanks!!
