Take the initiative and do the exercises that you know you do not like doing. Most likely, it is an issue of you believing you cannot accomplish the exercise which causes you to dislike them. You may actually prefer them if you were to give them a chance. You will eventually enjoy them if you keep working at them and realize that you can succeed. Try not to immediately give up on an exercise, even if you think you don’t like it. Like anything in life, you just need a little practice. Give these activities a try regularly for at least a month. You just might find that you enjoy them after all.
We watch this scene unfold everywhere. Preschool. Camp. Ballet recitals. T-ball games. Birthday parties. Your child has to participate in something, because he/she committed to doing it or he has to do it. But, then, he changes his mind. He digs in his heels. You feel powerless and angry and frustrated that he just doesn’t get it and he won’t obey.
One bit of parenting advice that will indeed help you stay on top of things is paying a lot of attention to the details in your child(ren)’s lives.

For instance, our school is 4 hours long, it starts with breakfast, group time, open room which is play time, music or outdoors play time, story time, group time/clean up lunch. then going home. As i explained to the 4 year olds, its a lot of play time with other children.
Before your child goes to preschool you should mark the day on the calender. I put a huge red circle on the calender and put a countdown on the computer that my son can look at any time. It makes him excited to see the days change and school get closer. As he watches that, we are also getting him to bed earlier and up earlier. We want him on the proper schedule for school which for us, means some adjustments Pick out an outfit for the first day of school. Perhaps an old favorite or something new that your child adores. Letting them choose their clothes can help boost their confidence.
