When a child starts school, like clockwork, every parent knows they will have to deal with ill-health. But no parent stops their child from school because of that knowledge.

School is part of a child’s introduction into the world. It helps to build their immune system. It helps to build their social skills. It helps them find people they like out of choice, and not just obligation. It helps them truly know their full name.

There is a dip that comes with every new experience. Dips precede upswings. Smile, enjoy the ride.
