I know the secret to raising kids who don't quit When my first born was 3 and her brother was 1, she started preschool. I wanted her to go because I knew she’d have fun, play with other kids and get ready for kindergarten. She absolutely loved it--for a couple of months. Then one day, she woke up and said she didn’t want to go to preschool. She wasn’t sick. She didn’t have a fever. Nothing seemed to be wrong with her. She just didn’t want to go and the more I insisted, the louder she became. She cried and I figured something was off and so we stayed home. It happened again on the next preschool day. The same upset. The same tears and arguing that she didn’t want to go. She said she hated it. Her teachers were mean. That caused me to sit up and listen. Did she really hate it?
