What kind of reaction should i expect.

My 18month old starts Headstart on monday and this is going to his first time around other kids his age. He will have 6 girl and 1 boy in his class. There will be 3 other kids that are 18months, and the rest are between 12-18 months. So what can i expect from him. He is generally a social child around adults, but hasn't been around any other kids under age 9.

  • Every kid is different, you'll just have to see what happens.

  • Don't be surprised if you get tears but as others point out, every child is different. Try not to get emotional yourself. That will make things worse since he may think there really is something to be scared of...

  • I wouldn't do it. He is too young. The studies show that kids that have gone to Headstart end up doing worse than other kids in school when they are older.
