Ladies, How do you cope up with fellow desi women gaslighting you when you are in a group thing/ get together and offline too? I avoided hanging out in bigger groups for the same reason from before but started facing it even in the smallest groups I have for some time now & it has been triggering & ruining my peace of mind. Even more when the spouses join the gaslighting bandwagon with their wife. For context, I’m single and never have anybody back me up.
Any suggestions welcomed.

Personally, I think observing how a potential preschool handles a shy child is critically important! You will get to see the teachers’ skill and empathy in action if your child struggles. I don’t think preschools are looking for perfect children (what is that anyway?). I think they are looking for signs of school readiness, like understanding directions, engaging in activities, and displaying age appropriate emotional responses (which includes separation difficulties at age 3!). Having trouble separating at that age is a sign of a secure attachment to a caregiver. That’s a positive thing! A good preschool will know how to comfort your child through the separation and redirect her to an activity. Also, in the 2s room at my preschool, it is basically silent all the time. The teachers say that at that age, kids clam up at school and don’t really learn to interact until 3s or even 4s... even if your kid is very verbal at home. When we toured I was amazed by our preschool’s teachers and what they knew about kids and how to engage them - they knew so much more than me, and have been so helpful in our children’s growth!
Love this response!
Not trying to be a tiger mom and get her into a baby ivy or anything, but she’s been at home with a nanny and is pretty clingy even at mommy & me classes so I am afraid she’ll have a meltdown at these “interviews”. I took her to a mommy & me class recently and while all the other 2 year olds were dancing or at least standing calmly in a circle, mine was crying to be picked up. Is the expectation that the kids can separate well already before preschools will take them? How can I prepare her for the observation or eventually going to school? This is all new to me so apologies if this is a weird or basic question.
Following as I have exactly the same situation with my son!
Also following as we are also in the process. I wouldn't even call my 2year old clingy, but in any new place/situation with new people (especially other kids for some reason), he clams up. Surely the nursery schools expect that to some degree?
My son is almost 2 and we just moved him into a daycare setting...he was having a pretty rough transition after being home with a nanny and the daycare teachers recommended we keep up with regular parent and tot-type classes and find opportunities to drop him off where we wouldn’t be around for a couple of hours, to give him a chance to get a little bit more comfortable with new settings and meet new people. I think it does help, if you’re looking for something you can “do”. But totally agree with previous poster that the preschool should support shy kids!!
