@Rani Lakshmi Hey, it is most important to ensure that the teachers and staff are friendly and empathetic. The school has the basic facilities, like bright and well-lit classrooms, clean washrooms, basic medical and first aid and a good play area. Ensure that they follow a particular preschool curriculum like a Montessori or Reggio or something else. Most importantly, your child should feel safe and happy to go to the school.

This is a very interesting question. Yes, when you listen to the child, you would naturally expect her to listen to you too. Lets understand why its not always that simple. When your child and you are playing together, she directs or instructs you to do certain things. It is her way of exploring her imagination and of acting out real-life situations as well. When both of you are enjoying the play and you listen to her spontaneously, the play builds interaction in your relationship. When it comes to disciplining your child by setting rules and limits, you would like to be in control, and its not a game anymore.

@Anonymous As your child grows you would naturally want your daughter to give up this habit. You have probably tried to do so in many ways, and none of them have worked. Many infants get into the habit of sucking the thumb or fingers because of the natural sucking reflex, which they also find very comforting. Some babies cling on to an object such as a soft toy, or baby blanket. Yes, it is difficult to break the habit, threats only make the child feel insecure and bribes don’t work. Usually, the habit wears off gradually. As children become more engaged in activities, play and learning at school, the habit tends to diminish and finally disappear at school. The same applies at home too. They will suck the thumb or fingers only when they are tired, hungry, upset or feeling alone. Connect with your child at these times with a warm hug and try to engage her with fun conversation. As long as the frequency of the habit is reducing, give your child time to gradually give up the habit on her own. Avoid making comments, instead pay attention to her stories, her play and activities.
