Re: Child Feels Left Out

I have a choice to enrol my child in a coed or single sex in my area. Only major difference is that the single sex school has affiliation to sec school so I am tending towards that. I was just discussing with my husband that maybe a mixed school will help her better in this instance. But then again,...

Re: Child Feels Left Out

I don't have advice but I feel like this is in my future - my kid is a year younger and already comes home with friend drama (also involving off-and-on BFFs...what is it about girls and BFFs??).

Re: Criteria for a Good Childcare Centre

Besides the basic academic aspect, what is important to me is how caring the teachers are, how well they guide the kids and the general vibe from the kids when I step into the school.

Re: Child Feels Left Out

I would say any form of martial arts. One which could be practising at home leading to the next lesson and grading. More importantly, it build up both strength and mental to overcome feeling of being left out, by being more independent. Friends, classmates, pets, they just come and go. I agree with...

Re: Child Feels Left Out

My 5 year old daughter used to close to 2 other girls in school but is no longer so. These 2 girls get along better and will choose each other when pairing up.
