Sending Your Youngest Child to Kindergarten

Yum
My youngest daughter is starting Kindergarten this year. She is 18 months younger than her twin sisters, and the fact that they got to go to "big kid" school and she didn't always irked her. She is very proud that she too will soon be going to the "big kid" school. But I have noticed that in the months leading up to Kindergarten she has become very clingy and reverted to baby talk. Clearly she is feeling some anxiety about the changes coming up. There are lots of good suggestions for dealing with that anxiety in Helping a Shy Child Prepare for Kindergarten. But since I am dealing with my own anxiety about sending my "baby" to Kindergarten, I thought a different type of post was in order. Since I had twins first, my youngest is the only child who has had significant one-on-one time with me while her sisters were in school. I think it will be a tricky transition for both of us, but these tips on Sending Your Youngest Child to Kindergarten have helped. These tips work for those of you with only children as well.

Sending Your Youngest Child to Kindergarten - Is your youngest or only child starting Kindergarten this year? This can be a bittersweet time for parents. Here are 5 tips to make the Kindergarten transition easier for both of you.

How to Say No

If you have kids in school or are involved in church or somewhere else in your community, then you might be inundated with requests to volunteer or help out in some way. There are lots of important jobs that need to get done and helping is a noble cause. Sometimes it seems like the same people volunteer all the time and are helping out every chance they get. Good for them! I am grateful for people like this as they are often the reason things happen and get done. But I have also come to realize that not everyone is gifted in the same way and not everyone is in the same season of life. Learning How to Say No is a vital skill that will save you countless stress and free you of built of resentment. Best of all it will free you up to say yes to what matters!
