Child schooling and Coaching
Recently, I realized that children grow very fast. You will get pregnant, and just before you even prepare for the baby, he/she already arrives. You bring up the baby and start weaning after six months. Events follow each other back to back, and within no time you realize that your baby is joining school. It is a letter to my mother elaborating on my worries and anxiety about my little girl who is yet to join school.
Recently, I have been thinking so much of how you brought up my brother and me up. I just realize that you did an excellent job now that I am experiencing parenthood as an early age mother. I have been thinking of my daughter enrolling in school, and it is an issue that made me feel excited while, at the same time, made me anxious. The most significant point of concern is now detaching away from her after being with her for the last two years. I feel that I will miss her so much when she is at school and also wondering if she will be okay.

From a recent evaluation, I have realized she has grown interested in the school to the point that she says she wants to go to school. It is a significant advantage that I have had since she has also reduced my worries. Thanks, mummy, for always taking care of us when we were young and teaching us parenting at a very little age. Your skills have gone a long way in helping me to handle my issues. I am now confident that our baby will join school without any stress.
