Education of my children has always been a big deal with me. Preschool?PDO? Homeschool? Full day kindergarten, half-day?Public?Private?
Now that I have sent my 2nd child off to kindergarten (private, full-time) after trying a mix of some of the above mentioned with my guinea pig 1st child, I would like to say that I am fully content with my decision and realize that having my 3 year old home with me this past week by himself,(his part-time preschool doesn't start until next week) affirms my opinion that:
my children THRIVE in school, with kids and grown ups that aren't mommy and daddy!
|He's so ready for some structure!|
At first, I thought of it as 'selfish mommy'- wanting time to herself... but my 3 year old proved the two-way street of it all- it's as much for him as it is for me. These few days without his brothers, he asks if we are picking them up every time we get in the car, and eagerly waits for them to come home and play with him. Yes, we have one on one time together, but it usually ends up with me being a human jungle gym and him getting restless and silly. He is SOOO ready for a break from ME! :)
School is a wonderful thing!
