Hello, I am a 32 y/o Mother of a 4 1/2 yr old girl.

My daughter will be starting Kindergarten in Sept. This will be the first time in her life she will be away from me (besides a day out with family). Not only am I afraid for her and how she will take to it but for myself and how I am going to adapt. I am a SAHM and as the time gets closer, I am getting more and more nervous. ANY advice, Please.

When my daughter started kindergarten I was nervous too. She was the exact same age as your daughter. She was very young. I was afraid she wouldn't be accepted socially because she was so young. Fast forward, she she phenomenally! Her grades were excellent, she socialized well and loved her teacher. I think we need to give kids a little more credit. Yes, she was nervous and so was I but it all worked out in the end. Also volunteer your time to work in the classroom. I did that too. I also got on the board and other activities so I knew what was going on.

My daughter goes to a charter school which is a little more strict than a public. They have to wear uniforms and such. They also have to be on their BEST behavior! I was so scared I would get a phone call from the principal lol. Never happened. She will do great!
