I know this topic has been visited in conversations through telephone lines, email groups and around kitchen tables everywhere:: What do I do with my preschoolers while I’m schooling my other children?
And while different families have different dynamics (obviously), hopefully we can glean good ideas from each other. Please leave your ideas in the comments section or next week my 4 year old may just drive me bananas!
Here’s some links to ideas that others have used:
