Well, the school does have a policy that mom and children cannot be in the same room. My current situation would require him to go to school. Husband works out of the house and all my immediate family also works. So, it just happens that I am the teacher of the age group he corresponds too. I know they are reluctant to the idea, but want to help me out.
What happened at my last job was that we were together all the time. I had very little help from other staff because they just assumed the "he's her mother and she'll deal with all the problems". This included him being jealous, tired, or even when he was misbehaving. It was all up to me to handle. It became too much of a burden and I know he was not happy there. The setting was not one of a typical preschool and it just was poorly organized...to make matters worse.
I am hoping that because this is more of a structured program and there are many more areas of interest for him....there will be little time in between that he will "need" me. This is the hope. Of course, it's something that'll have to happen in order to see what will actually happen.
I do feel that the administration at the school will be helpful and supportive. They are both moms and have had their children in the school. And so they understand what this process is like....which makes them nervous at the same time.
I am going to try and make him a special school backpack for him this weekend so that he'll think of this as a special event. Let's see!!!!
