{Raising Little People} Is your little birdy heading to big school this year?

Although I, myself am not staring down that barrel until 2016 I do have many friends who will be sending their little birdies to big school for the first time this year.

I stumbled across this hilarious Step by Step Guide to the First Day of School by the extraordinarily funny Em Rusciano.

It is certainly worth a read. em

Read it. Breathe it. Survive it.

{Raising Little People} Is your little-birdie ready for school?

Making the decision to send your little-birdie to school is so tough. How do you know when they are ready? What will be expected of them? Is 5 old enough? Or should we wait until he is 6?

I started school when I was 4, my friend started at 6. We both survived. So what’s the right answer?kid-ready-school-jpg

Ivillage have put together a list of indicators that may help you make that decision. You can find it here -> ‘Is my child ready for school?’

While not an absolute checklist, it does assist the decision making.

Did you send your little-birdie early? Or hold them back?
