I see a lot of people complain that parents don't do their job of preparing a child for school. what does 'preparing a child for school' mean to you.
Can you give a example of a child that you considered to be prepared for school and one that was not?

I just made sure that my children could do the following before kindergarden; Know the alphabet, count to at least 10 consistently, know how to recognize and draw basic shapes, know how to hold a pencil and write their first name, know all body parts (around here they ask kids where their hip, ankle, etc are) tie their shoes, know when their birthday is and their address, and they can state their full name. I think this is a pretty good start...oh, and how to use a pair of scissors
