Parents! Tell Me What You Want To Read About!

Time to tell me what topics you have been jonesing to ask your kid’s teacher about, but either didn’t have the time or didn’t really know how.

When it was suggested to me that I start a blog, one of the hardest hurdles for me to jump was coming up for a title for the blog itself. I settled on Just Ask Miss Jaide not only for the flow and the alliteration (definitely a fun aspect!) but also to imply my willingness to take suggestion on the material I write about. As I’m getting up and going, I want to ask the readers (parents, fellow teachers, childcare providers, nannies, whoever!) of this blog what topics they are most interested in seeing me post about!

Even though I am currently working with 3 – 4 year olds (that’s the age group many of you may associate me with) I have plenty of experience with toddlers as well. I was an assistant head teacher in a toddlers and 2’s room for almost four years! Please feel free to suggest any topic in the comments; knowing what my readers want to read is a big thing!

Just to get the ball rolling and those thoughts flowing, here are some things I have been asked about my parents over the years:

  • Songs that I sing in the classroom(Which ones? Lyrics to take home?)
  • Books to help get your children interested in reading
  • How can I help saying goodbyes easier for my child?
  • Any tips on potty-training? (I know this could be a loaded topic, but I also know a lot of parents ask it.)
  • My child says that so-and-so doesn’t want to be their friend, what can I/you/we do about it?
  • Letter recognition
  • Teaching kids how to actually use their words!

Your feedback will help give this blog direction. Whilst sometimes I may feel a calling to particular topic, I have accumulated so many opinions on so many subjects that I feel a little guidance picking something may be a good way to get started. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts,

Miss Jaide

    1. Hey Huimin,

      Thanks for the input! That’s a great suggestion, I would be really interested myself in writing about educational and fun games for siblings to play at home. I’ll add this to the list of upcoming topics ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Peer pressure โ€“ Everyday Miranda asks for wearing dress because โ€œher classmates wear dressโ€. It is interesting to see peer pressure starts so early among these little ones. I dont mean to judge it good or bad. Could you share some of your observation and your thought on this? Is it more common among girls?

    1. Hey May,

      I’m so glad you posted this. I see the little girls I teach struggle with navigating their social environment everyday; helping them develop strong, lasting social skills definitely takes a different approach than working with boys. This is for sure a topic I will be writing about, probably multiple times! Thank you for your insights ๐Ÿ™‚
