I am SUPER nervous about my son going to Kindergarten! The school he will attend is right across the street from our neighborhood, but that does nothing to settle my nerves. We live in GA and there have been at least 3 incidents involving guns at schools here just in the past few months, and just last month a 14 yr old boy at a middle school shot a class mate. I want to home-school him, but no one else thinks it is a good idea. They say he needs to be around children his own age. He has never been in day care or preschool, but he is very smart. He can count 100, say and recognize his ABC's, read some small words, add and subtract number 1-10, knows shapes, colors, ect. He says he wants to go to school. He would probably start today if he could. I don't want to stop him from doing what he wants, I just don't know if I can handle it! I have terrible anxiety and worry constantly if he is away from me. Any advice at all would help! Am I blowing this way out of proportion?
