Daughter Started Middle School today

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

I have 2 children and my oldest started 6th grade today. I have NEVER had a problem before sending my kids to school. I think it is because I was a teacher and did not want to be "one of those parents".

But I am struggling today. I keep thinking of her and praying she is having a good day. I am scared for her and hope all goes well. A strange new world we are entering this year. emoticon

    Yep, its a time we have to come to grips with. It's not so much school as that it's a girl entering those years where she is starting to change into a woman, and that brings a new and unique set of concerns. I know, our granddaughter just turned 12 this month too. We had an only son so I missed that particular set of issues from firsthand experience. And it is probably a good thing I did. I know if I'd had a daughter I'd already own that shotgun I always threaten to buy! LOL

    You have a right to be worried. Plenty of lousy teachers in the middle schools. (Even worse in the high schools.) But middle school is where the children don't know enough to complain (this math problem makes no sense) so you have to do it for them.
