Very well written. My daughter is 2. 6 years now and I will send her to playschool very soon. I considered all the factors before taking a call on the playschool, thanks once again.

I don't think so that it is too necessary to send our pupils to playschool or school... caz I think there is whole life to learn all things... n We.. means all family members can teach all that things which will taught by playschools or nursery schools.... remember all that golden period of our childhood, there is no tension, no responsibility, n no rules n burdens... just enjoy.. which is injustice for our childrens ....caz not suddenly bt slowly it will affect theirs mentality..

hi anubha... for toilet training,i had started it very early... when he was around 2+ months.. I used to read his pee signs n then make him. urinate on an absorbent mat beside my bed.. day n night.. he never liked to wear diapers.. it was tiresome.. specifically when I needed those couple of hrs for rest n his frequent urination then feeding would seem never ending ..but at the end of the game,he was trained early then his counterpart babies.. it's ds only.. catch the cues n give him some pee related signal like seee seee or suu suu etc ..be patient n consistent... applaud baby whenever she does pee like this.. reinforce required behavior.

i am in the same boat right now laxmi. my son is 1. 6 years now... though he can't speak bt tries to express himself by signs n hand movements.. he is trained for micturition now.. (not completely potty trained.. but advancing there) also I HV put him on a regular. 3 meal n two snacks in between diet n is not on BF anymore as a prep. other than my work,i am observing his stranger anxiety is growing day by day.. and to ease that I gs it's time for him to start social interactions,i think playgroup, for 1-2 hrs initially will be a good idea... but don't know a part of my heart still pounds heavy at even thought of sending him..

Thank you for giving the blog a read ..Playgroups should be introduced early on .. Social interaction is always healthy for little ones but the question remains how you do it ? Play dates at home , going to park can be done with kids with the age group of 6months onwards .. My daughter goes to the park to meet her friends and spend some time (under adult supervision at all times ) everyday .. It also helps her get some fresh air and sun .. Nursery again depends on your comfort .. I am waiting for my daughter to learn interacting better , start independently walking etc before being introduced to any institution where she needs to be left for a couple of hours .. All the best !
