This term at school DD's prep class is doing timelines of their lives. Over the holidays we had to write a sentence/event for each year of their lives that they could then turn into a timeline type thing at school.
DD wanted to write for "When I was 3" - "Mummy and Daddy lived together". I nearly said no, don't write that, write something else.. but then I thought perhaps it's wrong to teach her that being from a split family is something that you should hide or not talk about, or downplay the significance she feels about it.
So I wrote it down, but wondered if the teacher/other kids are going to think it's an inappropriate thing to write? She's not the only kid from a single parent family in the class, so I don't think she'll ever feel like she is different or anything, I'm just not sure whether I should teach her that there are more appropriate times to talk about these things... or whether I should encourage her to be as open as she likes about it.
