Ladies, I'm in need of some advice. My 3 year old son has been going to a preschool three times a week for about two months but has been constantly sick. My husband says it's the school not keeping things clean and I say it's because he is building his immune system. My husband won't agree to take him back to the school and wants to find a new one because his mother who is a PA and honestly a stubborn woman says it's the school. The problem is there is not another one nearby that my husband will let him go to. The one he wants is near my college but far from the house so if there was ever an issue with my school schedule my husband most likely would not be able to pick him up because he works in a completely opposite side of town (basically almost another town away) and has to leave for work as soon as I get home from school. My daughter is almost two and I want to put her in school as well. If I put my kids in the one by my school, that leaves everything up to me as far as dropping them off, picking them, up, and any other issue that arise with it. Also I am the one who gets them ready for the day so it will all be on my plate. Right now my husband can easily pick up my son if I need him to. I feel that my husband doesn't even want them in school because they don't have to be and it inconveniences him (even though it doesn't). My kids however thrive on the stimulation from school and it sets the rest of our day up for success. If my son doesn't go to school, he just stays at home with their dad while I'm at school and to be honest I think they just watch tv the whole time besides playing a little bit. Also the rest of the day, my son is so built up with energy that he gets into trouble the rest of the day. My husband is a great dad but seems to be going through a rough patch but I can't take my kids to a school if he doesn't agree and vise versa. I'm at a loss and I don't want to switch my son to another school. Any advice would help please!! I've set up a meeting with my sons current school but I don't exactly know what to say.
