I love my children's school....they know that to a young child family is everything, and they always talk about home and share stories and care about each other's lives away from school. It really enriches the children's knowledge and social skills, and encourages reluctant talkers. Two days ago my son came home explaining to me all about someone's baby brother's tongue tie, and yesterday it was a birthday so they all ate cake and sang.
Today 5 year old son's group made my partner a card. It's even got everyone's signature inside. It's the best Get Well Soon card ever, and possibly the cutest.
Must be working too, he had some scrambled eggs for tea :o)
