Are you Afraid?
We spend all this time preparing our children for their first day of kindergarten, but when we drop them off at school, we're the ones with the tears in our eyes. When we talk about preparing our children for their first days, we think that were the ones who really need the preparation. One way to do this is to meet the teacher in the spring, at the Kindergarten orientation. During this you can ask any questions you may have. I dont know if this happens in most schools, but we spent an hour in the classroom with the teacher the week before school started. Not only did my son get the chance to explore the class room, but I was given the oppurtunity to ask any questions that may have came up since the spring. I know its hard, seeing your baby grow up, its their first step towards independance, but dont worry they'll survive it, (and so will you.)
