Ours gives you a printout at your annual exam. I photocopy that for school/camp. If you need another one i.e. you lose the one they give you, they charge I think $25 for it [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] The Hunter thing seems like such a rip off. There are thousands of people spending $300 to test their kids for a school where very very few even get interviewed. It's just a money grab for the psychologists.. there should be a reasonable and free pre-assessment, of course. But there won't be. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

you are missing the point from the poster. it goes beyond pre-k. our kids in BPC are going to be in buildings of basements for K because of all of the new buildings and not new schools! The soonest we will see a new school is 2010, but doubtful it will be ready by then. so the K classes until then are not going to even be in a school, but borrowed space elsewhere. This in NOT right [ Reply | More ]

look F face, the outrage is at how over development was allowed with no thought to the added public service strains on our neighborhood. all of the people bought those apartments with the ads saying great public schools and now they are over crowded! plans for new schools and classrooms will be outdated and over crowded by the time the are built too - before you criticize me, educate your self on the issue.

ITA on the developers allowed to go nuts building 2-5 BR apts without considering elementary school seats. Since 150 is a choice/select/lottery school, the class sizes will always be the same (though huge -- 28 kids from K on up -- and the principal defends the sizes). PS 89 as a zoned school must accept kids from the neighborhood. Therefore you have a enormous K class this year that will mushroom up with nowhere to go. [ Reply | More ]

^^^by the way, some blame must be shared by the DOE and the administration of PS 89 who never anticipated this growth and are reacting instead of being proactive, which they should have been about 4 years ago. And back to the original question of Pre-K, Ronnie will protect that program and Connie -- they are very good friends, going way way back -- no matter what. Hopefully Connie will decide to retire soon because she is completely burnt out and bitter and negative. That's the only way PreK will leave that immensely overcrowded school. [ Reply | More ]

for a girl, a small silver cross (Tiffany has a lovely one from Paloma Picasso), maybe a silver St. Christopher medal for a boy. They also make very cute first bible stories books that you can get a B&N or you can get a "religion lite" picture book like a story of Noah's Arc or the Nativity. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] please help - 20 mo dd is seriously jealous of newborn. when I breastfeed, she is physically aggressive to db and me, and also behaves in a way that is dangerous to herself (putting things in her mouth, jumping off furniture, pulling at electric cords, etc). I have help during the day, but it is a big problem in the early am - DH refuses to get up to help out so I'm on my own with both. WWYD? 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No good advice except to let time pass. My ds was 24 mo when new baby was born and had similar experience (ds like to climb on me and/or bite me when I was feeding). Ds is still at times jealous but the real extreme jealously has meaningfully subsided over the past couple of weeks (newborn will be 2 mo next week). I would just try to always explain to DS what I was doing with the baby, ask him to come sit with us, ask him to bring over his toy to show the baby, etc.). Not sure this has had any real effect, think just had to wait it out. good luck, i know it is upsetting and stressful. [ Reply | More ]

the first thing to realize is that some of this is normal 20mo behavior and has nothing to do with the newborn. the biggest difference is that your hands are full so you can't deal with things as well. what i would do is 1. serve your 20mo breakfast and tell her a story or sing morning songs while she eats and you feed the baby. andc 2. set up at least one if not two rooms in your apt that are child-safe and you can let your dd have the run of the room without you worrying.
