lol it starts in kinder and yes it does freak you out I'm lucky DD goes to a small school but there are 2 classes in her year level, and most of the girls she was buddies with in kinder are now in the other class, so it's like a new class again. Honestly, I hate it and I worry when I don't know the parents. But DD is so desperate to go and wanting some independence (she's 7 ). I feel weird asking to stay when I don't know them. So I usually turn up 10 mins early lol
Last year she got invited by a *ahem* very rough family, and I don't just mean poor. I wouldn't let her go.
