Today Ethan spent four hours at a "Mothers' day out" preschool. He will be doing this twice a week now until Summer, so it gives us some quiet time, and him some new opportunities that are the main point to the exercise.
Aside from learning new things, Ethan will be able to interact with other children his own age. In particular, he's not really ever been around other boys his age as all of his cousins are girls. We're hoping that his new social interaction will not only allow him to make new friends, but will also be an outlet for him that will let him let of steam and improve his behaviour at home.
I'm delighted to be able to report that he behaved very well indeed on his first day. We had no problems dropping him off, and his teacher said he was very good indeed all day.
His next day there is on Tuesday. Hopefully the good behaviour continues!
