Time for school (tearflick)

posted 6 years 4 months ago
This upcoming school year my 5 year old will be attending kinder. Where the time went i don't know. I am happy and proud that she is growing and evolving into a young lady but I dont want her to grow to fast. She is my eldest so I don't know what this year will bring for me.

Id appreciate your experiences with this and what it brought in store for you.

Kindergarten was a good year for our little one. It really is a special time when they really start to show learning progress and they can conceptualize and form more consistent thoughts. Of course every child goes at their own pace, but that is the beauty of it is that these places are really good at providing different ways of learning. Hope everything goes great this year.

My oldest is 13 and heading into the teen years. It seems like only yesterday he was in kindergarten. I know it's hard to let go as our children move from stage to stage but each new stage brings new joys. Enjoy the moments that she is going to school. She is at the stage where she will soak up everything like a little sponge. I absolutely loved watching my son learn to read and was amazed at how quick he was to learn math. School brings different social and emotional challenges like making friends, being separated from parents etc. Embrace this first year of school.

I can't really offer much insight into this right now - my daughter is only one! But I have some friends already researching full time kindergarten programs for their little ones that start from two years old! I can't even come to terms with that yet! :'(

I think I'll end up putting my daughter into kindergarten at the usual 4 year old type timeframe, anything sooner I doubt that I would be ready for!

Probably the hardest part of being a parent is to accept the stages that they will grow through. I am excited and then again I want to bawl my eyes out. Now its kinder next its hair pulling high school. After I hope she'll choose college over young love. If any of you can stop time please tell me now.

Kindergarten was a nightmare for me and my daughter partly because I have a hard time dealing with the growing up of my children. It was hard for my daughter to transition from daycare to kindergarten and this made it difficult for me as well. I could not help her because I had to leave her and this was hard. She has been through a lot over the years but she has grown so much and is dealing with school so much better.

Just this past November, I had to deal with her reaching double digits. I cannot fathom where the time has went to and she has grown into such a lovely young lady. I wish you the best of luck and know that you are not the only one who has difficulty letting go. Unfortunately, it does not get easier as time goes by but you learn to deal with it better.

In all honesty I think I will have the harder time with her going to school than she will. She is active and friendly little girl. Makes friends easily and blends in naturally. It's her not with me all the time and that she is growing up whether I want her to or not.

I can only hope and pray my teachings get through to her and she carries it til she gets older. It really does sadden me how fast she is growing. It's like wait, What? Where did the time go? When did she get so big and independent? :/
