Earlier this week I was afraid I would have to rail against the government conspiracy to put all children in formal school before they are out of diapers.
Luckily for all of us, that wasn't the problem at all.
I went to the seminar about pre-kindergarten needs and if it is important the kids aren't ready for school when they begin. They were concerned about getting information to parents to help them know where to focus when playing and talking with their kids. It was about how to empower moms and dads to interact with their kids in a positive and productive way. Whew!
That is something I can get on board with.
I still bristle a little at the implication that children are only valuable if they are good students, and therefore good for the economy, but if all it takes is reminding a parent to count out loud in front of the child, or remember to read them a bedtime story, that is about good parenting, not government control.
