My best friend's daughter started Kindergarten today, three weeks after my son started. I have other friends and acquaintances whose children have started school. They all say they cry about it.
Really? Crying over Kindergarten? I say save the tears until you are driving them to college.
Truthfully, I never cried when my oldest started school, and I never cried when this second son started school. I have kept the philosophy that my goal is to teach my sons to be independent. Kindergarten is a step along that way. And I've not cried one tear about it.
But I do have one more son at home. In three years, I'll let you know if there were tears.
