A Time for Panic.....

As we prepare Mikala to head off to pre-school, I am suddenly finding myself in that familiar state of panic. There are some very specific worries I have where Mikala going to school are concerned. What if she has trouble using the potty? She has been known to "fall in" if her squishy seat is not properly in place here at home, there will be no squishy seat at school! What if she can't reach the potty? Mikala is a very "space oriented" person, what if one of the friendlier kids try to get into her space? I have seen her absolutely freak out over something like this! Will her teacher like her?? She can be VERY shy, and when she gets stressed sometimes she will "shut off"....Oh boy...maybe she should stay home!!!

Speaking from a teacher's perspective.... He or she is in the wrong business if he/she doesn't love children and I'm sure Mikayla will be no different as far as that goes. I always like it when a parent gives me a good head's up about a child's strengths and weaknesses that they are aware of. Then I can always adjust my teaching to accomodate their needs. Just don't let Mikayla see your fear or she may develop them also out of response to your worries for her. I'm sure everything will work out just fine for her. I know that good communication with concerned parents always makes my job easier and their worries fewer but every teacher is different I guess. Good Luck!
