In response to the report that half of Fayette County children are unprepared for kindergarten: When I started kindergarten in 1952, I knew my name, my parents’ names, our address, phone number, could count to 100 and print my name.
Mom was a full-time mother and housekeeper, so had plenty of time. As a working adult and housekeeper, I still found time to teach my children. It’s a matter of priorities and my children were first.
Let us train new mothers to spend time with their children, as well as seek to improve our public educational system.
