Peeling a banana tests school kids!

What has happened to our kids?

When I ran my family day care my focus was on helping children to learn how to do things for themselves. They start school and they are a small fish in a big sea and if they can’t help themselves (or learn to ask for help) then they will more than likely struggle through their first year in Kindy. I always said to the families I worked with, a child who is self sufficient and resilient on the playground will be a happy child! A happy child doesn’t have to stress about the basics and they can then focus on the learning. ABC and 123 is important, but you can learn that while counting how many times you can hop (which links to “Hop on Pop” by Dr. Seuss) on one foot!
