My daughter spilled her juice again the other day for what seemed the millionth time in her two years. As I cleaned it up, I found myself mentally calculating the number of months it would be until she was safely lodged in kindergarten.

But then I caught myself. Was I thinking that her entry into school would mean less responsibility on my part? "No!" I thought at once. "Not if she is anything like her brother." Her brother, a second grader, is happy at school and has done well academically. Yet, like most other children, he has his day-to-day run-ins to work out and his share of social adjustments to make.
