Patience and Understanding

Last year my grandkids went to a little preschool held at a small church - it was a new experience for us all.  At most schools, there is etiquette involved in the drop-off and the pick-up.  Nobody wants to be that parent doing it wrong because the other parents are ready to pounce on the… Continue reading Patience and Understanding
