We just have to give these kids a chance. A lot of teachers have this idea of structure and having to do things a certain way. But they're kids. I understand that we have to meet the standards, but they're still five. At the end of the day they're still so young. I think a lot of teachers forget that.
On one hand, I want to be excited for my son. I want him tackle obstacles on his own. I want him to learn from others what I'm unable to teach him. I want him to be independent and have life experiences that don't always include me -- I really do. But on the other hand, I want him to need me forever.
