I want him to be the smartest in his HS class so he gets a good college. Should I wait to enroll in the preschool program until next time when my newborn will be older?

Don't live through c: Don't live your life through your child. Getting into the best college is not as important as most people think.

Can a child go to a regular school if he is selectively mute?

Can a child go to a regular school if he is selectively mute?

Yes, but it's tough: A child who is selectively mute is by definition a "special needs child". Their version of communication will be different, and there is generally a good reason why they are mute, either from a social or other phobia, ptsd, antisocial syndromes, or other type of reason. A child who is selectively mute should get an iep (individual ED plan) to ensure a normal school offers the right services. ...Read more

How do children get mono and is it contageous? My son is 6 and going to be 7 in a few months. He goes to public school in hawaii

How do children get mono and is it contageous? My son is 6 and going to be 7 in a few months.  
He goes to public school in hawaii

Infectious : Infectious mono is a viral illness caused by the epstein barr virus (ebv). It is spread primarily through saliva which is why it is also known as the "kissing disease", but can also be spread through sharing eating utensils. Even among people who catch ebv, many are not symptomatic, so special precautions (such as no kissing) are not needed. 95% of adults aged 35-40 have been exposed to it at some point and have immunity to it - at least 50% of them had no symptoms of mono. I attached a link to the page on ebv from the center for disease control with more information. ...Read more
