My 4 year old daughter can’t wait to start preschool school. Every morning, she wakes up and asks, “Am I going to school today?” Yesterday she wouldn’t eat her green beans. I picked up my phone and warned her that I was going to call the school and tell them she couldn’t come because she didn’t know how to eat her vegetables. Two minutes later they were gone. I did feel bad about the tactic, though – for about half a minute.
Can you imagine even thinking about trying that a few years from now when she’s actually been in school for a while?
