In My Humble Opinion...

I am a member of a message board that has many well-meaning mothers among it's membership. These women are staying at home with their pre-k children and are providing the kids with an excellent education. However, they get discouraged when their 3-year-old cannot recognize all of the alphabet letters, cut with scissors, color inside the lines, work with worksheets or sit still for more than 10 minutes at a time.

Remember this: they are children. Young children! These stay-at-home moms are giving their children priceless opportunities to learn while playing and (most importantly) time. School, straight lines and worksheets will come soon enough.
