School is over so all three kids are now in the same daycare for the summer. The preschoolers (soon to be Kindergartners) are at times with the school age kids: outside play, quiet time and maybe more. Despite a small meltdown when I picked them up (V wanted to wait for snack time - although I always have good snacks in the car and at home which is only a 10 min ride- and he ended up rolling on the floor while getting louder and louder), V was quite happy on how things went at daycare. He played along side of Partner which allowed him to be with "friends". Of course, they are Partner's friends, but V does not understand that. Partner enables him to join a group and play. Something he cannot do on his own and he increasingly had complained that he has no friends, no one wants to be with him. The thing is V does not understand that play is a mix of give and take, compromise between what one wants and what the other(s) wants. So I am wondering if it is good for V to have Partner with him at daycare right now or if it will forbid him to actually learn social skills... Partner will be gone the whole month of July (going to France), so then V will be on his own again. Should I "coach" Partner on how to help his brother. I know it might sound like a big burden for a 6 year old but V did not choose to have those challenges either. Isn't what family does? Help one another? I am not sure if this situation is a blessing or a curse... Can I turned it into a teaching time for V? Or should I just leave it alone? Lots of question with only 2 month before K. I just feel like the situation with V's issues is going to explode at my face and I try so hard to prevent it.
