Should kids attend funeral of a grandparent?

Should kids attend funeral of a grandparent?

Yes: Well, it depends on the age of the child and whether they were close to the grandparent. If they didn't really know them, or are very young (too young to really understand) then no.

At what age should children start physical education classes?

At what age should children start physical education classes?

Whenever they can!: PE time has been eroded from many public schools and it's a real shame! Being physically active and engaging in creative play is beneficial to a child.

It actually helps them be better students! http://www.webmd.com/parenting/raising-fit-kids/move/parents-pe-questions?page=1 ...Read more
