DAD: “I remember vividly the guilt and fear when we dropped off eight-week-old Emilia. Putting her name in all her clothes felt like some kind of prison situation. Just three years later, when we left for a sabbatical, we were worred that she and her new sister would be permanently harmed by missing a year at Greenberg. “For the staff, I think dealing with all the parents must be


tough. Every one of us is either too worried or not worried enough about something related to our kids. Also, the teach- ers never sit. They’re always moving, always attend- ing to the needs of the children. My favorite part of the day would be encountering the kids’ joy of discovery, which constantly unfolds. “At Greenberg, all three kids learned how to play, draw, share, appreciate nature, eat healthy food, negotiate conflict, say sorry, poop on the potty, tie their shoes, and give and receive love. We parents learned too. We realized we’re not alone in raising our children; we’re not the only ones who think they are decidedly spe- cial. During our time here, all other things were possible be- cause we knew our kids were safe and valued.”
