Well, i have a 3 year old and an 1 year old. I'm not really sure if I want to send my 3 year old to pre-school this year. I guess you can say I'm very attached and love being at home and spending time with my boys. I see this two ways, the first, I know it would be good for him to be around other kids his age, I stay home with them most of the time, i work 2 days a week. My mother-in-law watches them when i work, so they don't get much interaction with other kids other than church on Sundays. As a mother I feel like our kids are growing up too fast sometimes, do they really need pre-school at 3? They are going to be in school for many years of there life, should i start now or wait until next years pre-school or just skip pre-school and send him to kindergarten?! Second, it know it would be good for him to be around other kids and work on his social skills and have a little bit of structure to his day, but I'm just not real sure what i want to do. Any other moms having the same concerns??
