My son is a bright, sweet boy who happened to not do very well when he started Pre-K.
It was a combination of factors that included a teacher/student misfit, a diagnosis we had yet to receive, and just not being ready. In fact, we pulled him out that December. I questioned if we were making the right decision. After his first week home, though, his behavior made a complete 180. This poor kid had been in a stressed out-meltdown mode for an entire semester!
Later, the school called and suggested trying a different Pre-K class the following year. At that point, I didn’t question if I was making the right decision.
