    I worked as a teacher’s aide in a preschool for two years. From my experience I would have to say that preschool is beneficial for all children. Some students began the school year needing absolutely everything we could teach them, manners, routine, learning to recognize their name, absolutely everything. We also had students who had older siblings and were already accustomed to routines and manners. Even these more advanced children learned fine motor skills such as handling scissors and crayons. Many parents don’t realize how much children learn from games such as hop-skotch and activities such as cutting and coloring. Children from all types of families can benefit from starting school at a preschool level.

    Do children need preschool? I don’t guess they need it, but they are definitely better off if they do receive this early education.

    I have recently moved myself and my two children in with my boyfriend and his daughter, we are now having problems with the children constantly fighting and the fact that his child does not seem to adapting to no longer being the only child and also has a grandmother who does not like me enables the situation causeing the child to lash out even worse. Our house is nothing but fighting hateful mean children anymore and it has now caused us problems. I love this man with all my heart and would do anything to make this work . How do i solve this problem.
