I am so excited that I just had to share this. My son who was my first born is going to be starting prek in August. I am so happy because for the longest time we didn't think he would be able to. See the thing is we have been having a very hard time potty training him. He refuses to so I thought he would not be able to start prek at the local day care. Well I found out yesterday that they will take him. They even think that him being in prek may help with the potty training. So I just wanted to share this with everyone because it made me very happy.

Glad to hear that your oldest is getting ready to enter the wonderful world of PREK! My sister taught it for many years. Here are some things you should know: * don't for get the "accident" bag at the end of the day! She heard horror stories at least once a month about how an "accident" bag was left in the car, the hallway, the garage. The next morning the room was RIPE. * take a bajillion pictures! * find a teacher that your son is comfortable with and ask her if she ever does babysitting in a pinch. She will be the best person to call in if you have an emergency or a regular sitter cancel. kids are always good for their teachers. Anyway, congrats! I'm sure your heart is swelled with pride :)

Dont you just wish that there was a simple plan for all kids, some kids are so easy to train and others just refuse. My daughter-in-law is having this same problem with her daughter,I am at a loss to help her with suggestions because mine were so easy to train.They say boys are easier to train than girls but im not sure about that. Good luck and congrats. on having your child accepted to perk.

Thank you so much. I have actually heard that girls were easier than boys. So I guess it is a case by case basis!

My brothers' youngest son was like that. He didn't seem to want to be potty trained at home. They were afraid that because he wasn't potty trained that he wouldn't be able to go to pre-k but they found out that they were wrong. After he started there it was took just a couple of weeks before he was completely potty trained.

Cool, I hope that is the same for my son. It is just very agrivating because I have a daughter who is 10 months younger than him who is 100% completely potty trained. Has been for almost a year now.
