When summer winds down, parents and kids alike gear up for a new school year. Although getting an elementary-aged kid ready for school certainly has its challenges, parents of preschool kids face a whole other set of obstacles. These kids are ruled by their emotions, so dropping them into a classroom of like-minded peers can be especially challenging. In this case, the back to school memes only parents of preschoolers understand will hit home. Any parent who has struggled to survive the drop-off line will relate.
Really, preschoolers live in their own world. It seems like a fun place most of the time, but their strong convictions on everything from chicken nuggets to the color green can make for some interesting conversations with parents. It can wear on you. Of course you'll miss the child during preschool hours, but it's also nice to have a break from the constant barrage of questions and shouty demands for snacks. A little me-time is crucial for everyone, especially parents of preschoolers.
And of course, preschool can offer so many options for growth and development. There's the chance to make friends, learn new lessons, and gain a bit of independence. Oh, and it's helpful for the kid, too.
