How much is too much? The average American child spends 4 hours a day in front of a TV. That really should be 1 hour, maximum. Screen what your children watch. Some programming might be the source of your child's bad dreams.
Your child will need a "kindergarten physical" prior to starting school. This can take place up to 6 months before school actually begins.
You Made It! Regarding kindergarten, you know your child best. If you have any doubts about whether or not your child is ready for kindergarten, consult your child's preschool teacher. As for motor skills, your child is now able to hop on one foot and ride a bike with training wheels. Your child may also be ready to begin working snapping his fingers and tying his shoes. Please remember that these are difficult skills and will take time to master. Don't pressure or rush your child before he is ready to learn them.
