12 Months Apart: My son, the preschool dropout

12 Months Apart: My son, the preschool dropout

What do you do when preschool turns out to be a total nightmare? Pull them or stay the course?

Last spring, I enrolled my 2-year-old son Jack in pre-school without thinking much of it. I figured he already blew through all the big milestones, so why would preschool be any different?

Later, when my mom friends finished their dogged pre-school searches and all decided on a partial separation class (a class where moms attend in the beginning of each class and then head to a separate room down the hall– to help ease them into the experience – as opposed to dropping off) I remember thinking, "Really? What's the point of that? Gotta rip that Band-Aid off."

I had become cocky, but the mommy gods soon put me in my place.

September came and it was downright awful. You know how they say "Little Susie cried for a few minutes when you first left but then she found the dolls and had the most wonderful time." Lies!

Week after week when I picked up him up, he was a sobbing mess, after crying himself silly for the entire 2.5 hours. Soon his crying fits turned into panic attacks. He'd sit totally silent and shaking with giant tears running down his cheeks (and this is a boy who typically flails his arms when he's upset). He wouldn't even look at me. He was terrified.

And to be honest, I can’t blame him. During those six weeks, two of the three teachers became visibly annoyed with him. Sure, dealing with a crying child sucks but isn't that part of being a preschool teacher? There's no way he's the first 2-year-old to cry because he misses his mommy!!

Cloaked in failure, I brought the situation up at a dinner with a handful of other mom bloggers. Of course, this triggered a heated debate about whether or not I should pull him out of pre-school...oh, and the creation of a hashtag in his honor - #savejack.

And eventually that’s what I did. I saved Jack.

Yes, I pulled him, which was 100 percent the right decision for us. The only problem is – I waited too long. I realize that with a traveling hubby, two boys under 2 and more than a full plate at work I was just trying to keep my head above water at the time but still…I knew in my gut that the preschool wasn't the right fit for my little man, but I was hesitant to pull him because I was busy and also because I feared other moms judging me.

Now he has a deep-seated fear of school. I can’t even read books about the WonderPets going to school without him getting upset. But, like it or not, his 3-year-old program starts in September – and he’s going. To get him ready, I enrolled him in that same partial separation class I made fun of , which starts next week. (Wish me luck!)

The Band-Aid is coming off. Just bit by bit this time.

An electric current drives hormone cells - a new hope for hormone-free conception!

The breakthrough results of our research have led to the development of a non-hormonal pill.

An examination of the "fertility attractiveness" of the ovum and the sperm reveals that one of the hormones released by the ovum is called the spermatozoa, which responds in less than a second.
The results, published in Nature, suggest that it was possible to develop hormone-free contraceptives that would turn off this label. These new supplements could eventually replace the currently known contraceptive pill.

Called ovum

At the University of California Polina Lishko Experiments on mouse and human spermatozoa were used to show how ova ready for fertilization are perceived. It has been found that when the sperm comes in contact with progesterone hormone released by the ovariectomized cells, the electrical power of the excreted tail moves back and forth, and the tails start to move faster. Rapid reciprocal movement of the tail also allows the anthrax cell to penetrate the egg, thereby fertilizing it. Previously, biologists had known that the egg used some chemical stimulation of the sperm during the mating process, but the relationship had not been established. In this experiment, it was first possible to detect, at the molecular level, how the ovum signals to sperm. This discovery has the potential to develop a hormone-free contraceptive solution that prevents the egg from stimulating the sperm.

  • The principle is based on vaccination (specific immunotherapy) in the long run with extracts of allergens. It is proposed from the age of 4 years, either with drops to put under the tongue every day, or with bites, which is not the taste of small in general. This desensitization gives results in the months following the beginning of the treatment and, in this case, it will have to continue for about four years to stabilize them sustainably.
