Check Out Science of Parenting

As many of you know, I am the parent to three children. This year they are in kindergarten, 3rd grade, and 5th grade. The start to a new school year is always a challenge with new routines, new teachers, and meeting new friends. With my youngest heading to kindergarten this year, I have been reminded of all the challenges my older two children faced when they started school. One child refused to participate in reading at school and the other would not go to the bathroom at school. All three of my children were absolutely exhausted at the end of each day of kindergarten. Exhaustion leads to tough situations at home. When I have moments where I do not know how to handle a situation, I either turn to my family or to the internet for help.

Turning to the internet is a risky option because I cannot be sure if the site I found is research-based information. One online resource I know I can rely on is Science of Parenting. If you are a parent, grandparent, caregiver, aunt, uncle, or educator, Science of Parenting has something for you when you are facing a challenge with a child in your life.

Science of Parenting balances the research with the reality of caring for children of all ages. If you have a child in your life, check it out today.

  1. When my oldest started 1st Grade, he would refuse to go to school. Most mornings, I would walk with his siblings and everyone in my day care to the bus stop. I would then call the school to make sure that he actually entered the school from the bus because he was so adamant that he wasn’t going to go to school anymore. Later in his teens he shared the reason why. He thought that everyone after Kindergarten had to attend school because they were naughty. He did not think of himself as a naughty kid so he didn’t understand why he was being forced to attend. Thank goodness he is able to laugh about it now.

  2. Wow, Sue! That sounds like a challenging season for you and him. I’m glad he finally shared his reasoning 🙂
