My daughter is 4 and is enrolled to start JK in Sept. Today I had a slight anxiety feeling in my chest just thinking about the whole thing. Who will watch her? Who will comfort her when she's hurt or upset? Am I making a mistake? Will these feeling go away?
As a stay-at-home Mom, I've never been without her since she was born and only my Mother has watched her and that's only been for a few hours at a time. I just can't imagine someone else taking care of her. I know they are educators but they are responsible for her safety - something I just can't come to grips with.
I hate the feeling so much I considered HS. I'm wondering if my reason is the wrong one. I've read many parents' reasons for HS; special needs, bullying experience, control over what their child learns and how, etc. But have yet to hear of a parent who has the feelings I do. Today I felt alone and needed to reach out. I'm hoping someone is there to reach back.
