    I discoverd this fantatic poem to give to parents ……..

    WHEN YOUR CHILD COMES HOME MESSY

    Red paint in the hair?  Blue paint on the jeans? Sand in the shoes?

    Butter on the favourite shirt?  White socks look brown?

    Sleeves a little damp?

     

    YOUR CHILD probably…

    Worked with a friend

    Solved a problem

    Created a masterpiece

    Negotiated a difference

    Learned a new skill

    Had a great time

    Developed new language skills

     

    YOUR CHILD probably didn’t…

    Feel lonely

    Become bored

    Do repetitive tasks that are too babyish

    Do worksheet tasks that are too easy

    Do sit-down work that is discouraging

    YOU probably…

    Paid good money for those clothes…

    Will have trouble getting the red paint out

    Are concerned that the caregiver isn’t paying enough attention to your child

     

    THE CAREGIVER probably…

    Was aware of your child’s needs and interests

    Spent time planning a challenging activity for the children

    Encouraged the children to try new things

    Put smocks on the children

    Was worried that you might be concerned
