Hi i am a stay at home mum of almost 3yr old b/g twins. I want to ask if you think its a good idea to put my twins into 3yr old kinder or just wait till 4? I thought it may be a good idea as they haven't had much experience of being away from mum. They went to daycare for a short amount of time but i pulled them out because my son wasn't enjoying it and it broke my heart to see him upset when i left. My daughter really didn't care whether i was there or not. So as i wasnt working i decided to just keep them home and do activities with them :) please share your thoughts!

I put my 3 yr old son in half day preschool 3 days a week. It's been wonderful for him. He gets just enough socialization etc and it's not too long for him. Not everyone that's 3 needs that or is ready though. Every kid is different.

It might help to get your son socialized, especially if you can volunteer in the class with him once or twice a week.

Going to school full-time for him straight out of the blue will be hard but easing him into it might reduce the trauma for both of you.
