Considerations About Deciding to Send a Child to School

Discussion For parents there can be a lot of pressure to “get it right” when deciding to send their child to school. Positive adult life outcomes such as employment, physical and mental health, and prosocial relationships are associated with higher educational attainment. Higher educational attainment such as finishing high school and potentially an advanced degree is associated with positive school experiences and domain specific skill attainment (e.g. reading, writing, math skills) and is also associated with readiness to begin school. Therefore if a child is “not ready” to start school, then the parent can feel that they are setting their child up for potentially poorer outcomes for their entire life. Especially as children spend a significant amount of their time in school over many years, the quality of that education is important. Which also means that starting children in school when they have the knowledge, skills and attitudes to successfully learn is important. Risk factors for poor school readiness includes: Poverty – one of the most important, this is across ethnic and racial groups, most likely because of lack of resources, less parental education, poorer health, etc. Living foster or kinship care – especially foster care, most likely because of unstable living arrangements Maternal depression – potentially being less available to the child Developmental disability Prenatal/natal factors such as tobacco or alcohol exposu...

Finding a humorous angle to some of my darkest episodes – and sharing them with strangers – was strangely cathartic“Have you gone mad?” asked one friend. “You’re so brave. I could never do that. Wouldn’t meditation be wiser?” said another. For someone with a long history of depression and anxiety, plus a morbid fear of public speaking, taking up standup comedy might seem like a masochistic decision. Yet to me it makes perfect sense. Excruciating fear of failure is at the heart of most people’s aversion to attempting to make a room full of strangers laugh. But controllin...

This study evaluated a training program aimed to prepare people for these important roles. Survey data at pre-, post- and at three- and 12-month follow-up were used measuring knowledge, attitudes, and self-efficacy, as well as psychological distress as a safety measure. Participants experienced significant gains in knowledge after training, although not all aspects of knowledge were maintained at follow-up. Self-efficacy was examined through confidence and empowerment. Confidence gains were significant at immediate and longer-term follow-up but gains in empowerment were not maintained over time. Participants' positive atti...
