It has happened. My first child has entered the public school system. I am terrified.
We’ve met the school nurse and the teacher. We’ve been to the open house and viewed his classroom. It doesn’t make any of this any easier.
My wife and I have done all that we can to prepare him for this big step forward in his life, and now we will not be the main influence in his life. Other kids will compete with us, using their peer pressure of doom to overcome our super electro ray of parenting power. I’m sure the whole situation would make for one heck of a trading card game, but it’s much more frightening and much less fun in real life!
Do you have words of wisdom for a young father such as myself in this difficult time? Please share!
