My son failed school


Well, we call it school
This was a while ago - he was less then 2.5 years old
They said he did not know how to use scissors
And he didn't know a lot of colors
My wife talked to them - he knows lots of colors - just not the ones they were asking about

We had not thought of having a 2 year old use scissors
I gues if he got into a toddler fight they, might come in useful
So the wife bought some kiddie safe scissors & he has been practicing

How come they call themselves a school if they can't teach? Isn't that their job? Or do they just test and judge?

I'd say the school failed.

Actually its DayCare - meant to say that
I wasn't aware a child that young should be using scissors either
But they do all sorts of projects, drawing, construction paper cut-outs, fingerpaints etc
So it's more then a Daycare really

My son failed school


When I was filling out the paper work for my daughters to start kindergarden in about 1991, one of the questions on the form asked what our annual income was.

I found out that the kids are placed in classes according to their parents income and education level.

They weren't concerned with how much the kids knew, it was more about the parents.

I don't know of any kids who have the coordination to use scissors at that age. But, by the age of 3 they should be well on their way to completing their bachelor's degree. LOL

I noticed the sign when I picked him up
It's a "Learning Center"

They have kids anywhere from infants to preschool & also watch kids after school. So a big spread of ages. Each is seperated into their own area & there are 2 outside playgrounds to keep the big kids & little kids seperated.
Out of all the places we visited (wife went thru even more) we liked this one the best. A few the MIL said her grandson is NOT going there

If you and your wife checked it out and your son is happy there, it's probably a good place.

Your MIL would probably just as soon have him at her house instead of in daycare. It's a grandma thing. There was a time when I didn't have any openings in my daycare. Right at that time, my daughter and her fiance's work hours changed to where they needed to put my grandson in daycare for a few hours a day, Mon.-Fri.

I couldn't handle the thought of my little buddy going to a strangers house. I rearranged a few things and he came here while they were at work. It was a blessing to me that I was able to do that.

My son failed school


He goes for 2 days a week
He was home with me 4 days a week, grammy came up 1 day a week
But he needs to interact with other kids his age
Hard to do in the winter, so this gives him a chance to play
And gives me time to build the garage/addition/work on the house

You're right, it's good for him to play with other kids his age. I have a family whose mom has been on maternity leave for 3 months. She still brought her older daughter the normal 2 days a week even though she wasn't working. This way, her older daughter had other kids to play with, and the mom had a couple days to get things done and go to doctor appointments.

Another mom is having her baby next week. I'll still have her older son one day a week while she's on maternity leave.

I'm really glad the mom's do that. I'd miss those little guys if I didn't see them for 3 months.

That's so nice that your MIL spends one day a week with him. It's probably the highlight of her week.

Scuba, Not to worry at 2 1/2 or 3 ....scissors? Who cares. Is he going to be a hairstylist....
Talk to him about your projects. Is he plugged in, Does he socialize and get along. Does he share and show compassion? Does he hug his mom and love puppies and trucks and chase frogs. Do his eyes bulge out when he gets excited and babbles... . Just enjoy him. Hug him, Lead him and nudge him

JK and Kindergarten are for learning. That's where he can learn about scissors. M<aybe he is a closet lefty....He has been on the planet 30 months. A 3 year old is 20% older than him.... keep it in perspective you'll be fine.

Buddy when my oldest was about 5, one night at bedtime he said he thought he might be a girl trapped in a boy's body... seriously... we talked but he didn't really know why he said that. Think about it where does a 5 year old even come up with that ?

No feminine tendencies.. ever. And I'm not Homophobic.
I think he heard it on TV. Never brought it up again. But he was good with scissors...
He is now very confident, masculine , and has had girlfriend for 2 years now, red blooded healthy boy. Wnats to drive my car....Has a fisrt job Life is good . Enjoy . Scissors will come in time.
