They've made it to Preschool

For many parents, the preschool years can feel like a breath of fresh air after the exhausting and demanding baby and toddler season. At this age, children are learning to do more and more tasks for themselves, and they’re full of curiosity and wonder about the world around them. As you embrace the joys and navigate the challenges of this season with your child, these resources will provide inspiration and practical suggestions.

Correcting Your Preschool Child's Bullying Behavior

How can we stop our preschooler from bullying other kids? Our 4-year-old is a bright and loving child, but he's also quite strong willed. His teachers have already talked to us several times about his uncooperative behavior — interrupting, ignoring instructions, etc. But now something more serious has happened. He recently pushed one student to the ground and hit two others. His only explanation was that these boys weren't his friends and weren't doing what he wanted! We don't allow this kind of behavior at home, but how can we make sure that he'll follow our instructions when Mom and Dad are not around?


During the coming months you will have an important window of opportunity to lay foundations that will affect the rest of your preschooler's life.

The Low-Pressure Guide to Parenting Your Preschooler

This book shows parents that it's really not their job to make sure their child turns out "right." Instead, the author encourages parents to learn the much simpler and more rewarding role God has for them.
