How many uniforms for a kindergartener?

Hi --

Unless your child is unusually tidy, I'd think one complete uniform per
day. If you get three uniforms, that means you need to do laundry every
three school days. If your child is unusually...

I'm not sure why the school (where the lessons are taking place) doesn't

Keep a written record of what you've told them, what CPS has told them

son is often tired

Think about just what he's eating, especially in the evening. It
needn't be caffeine or sugar, just something that keeps *him* awake.

Hello --

This doesn't seem unusual to me, but if you're concerned you should take
your son to a dentist. In the meantime, a pain reliever at night should
help with the sleeping trouble.

They don't restrain the upper body. This means...

Definitely speak with your physician. This is not *that* uncommon a
