Moms Talk is Lake Forest Patch’s newest feature in an ongoing effort to connect with local moms and families. We encourage you and your local circle of friends to come together and build an online community of support here at the Patch.
Every week, a member of our Moms Council will pose a question for us all to discuss in an effort to give one another advice and share solutions with regards to the issues that Lake Forest parents are facing. If you have a question or topic that you would like to discuss, we would love to hear your ideas.
So without further ado, we give you the very first Lake Forest Moms Talk:
This time last year, I was nothing but a big ball of stress. I spent hours researching schools, trying to figure out which offered my daughter the best education, while racking my brain trying to figure out how on earth we were going to afford tuition.
No, Mari was not applying to college; she was going to preschool!
This year, when I received the e-mail regarding priority re-enrollment for Mari’s second year of preschool, my heart couldn’t help but ache for those moms who are now in the position I was in a year ago. Moms and dads are trying to make the first big academic decision for their children and are probably feeling just as overwhelmed by the process as I was. In an effort to help parents in the midst of preschool selection hell, I would love to dedicate the very first Moms Talk to the subject.
To get the discussion going, I pose this question: What do you look for when searching for your child's perfect preschool?
