Starting school is a huge milestone and as parents most of us try and do what we can to prepare our kids for a good education. It can be hard to know exactly when to send your child and whether or not their learning in on par with their peers.
For that reason some schools have started sending out school readiness checklists, which are loosely based on recommendations from child psychologists. They act as a way for parents to check off their child’s abilities and be confident that their child will be learning at the same level as the other children in their kindy class.
These checklists can also help parents focus on specific tasks which they may not have considered prior to the kids starting school.
Helpful, yes? Sure. Unless you are this mother from Ohio who received a checklist from her local school and posted a photo of it on imgur.
