Biz and Theresa talk about the emotional roller coaster of letting your child go to school for the first time. Plus, Biz tries to convince us she has ghosts! We're joined by Asha Dornfest, co-author of Minimalist Parenting: Enjoy Modern Life More by Doing Less.

Episode 47: Getting Emotionally Schooled

What was your experience sending your child to daycare or preschool for the first time?

Discuss!

a.) Everyone's doing a great job! Way to go, parents! Raising up the next generation of kickass people. I doff my cap to you all <3

b.) I just wanted to say I was one of those kids with really intense separation anxiety when I first started kindergarten; I vividly remember crying all day long early on. Ultimately, I grew up loving school and having a really good experience pretty much the whole time. Obviously everybody's different, but there's one little piece of anecdata where a rough start doesn't mean years and years of misery :)
