I am getting ready to send my 2 year old toddler to a toddler program next week for the first time. Have to fill out a form “bathroom waiver”, which is basically allowing teachers at the school to clean my child after a potty, including genital area. I feel uneasy about this but I know I have to let them… I assume all parents have signed such waiver?

Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing.

One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.

What would you do? My father in law is rough with my young kids. A lot of this happens when he’s tired and they are moderately misbehaving (examples below). Tonight we were going to leave the kids for date night and I saw him be rough w my 2 and 4 yo. We canceled date night and talked to him. His response: well that’s the way I am. If you don’t trust me don’t leave your kids with me. How would you handle? I respect and look up to him which is why I regrettably allowed this to go on in the past.
