before to send their children to school, parents usually worry if he was in a children's staff whether the teacher will understand their child will not be hurt if his high school students will be able to show whether all of their abilities.

emergence of such anxiety and doubt is justified.The whole life of the child change.Instead carefree games are the lessons and homework.It seems to be like other children, but mother and grandmother will replace teachers and teachers, the baby will have to part with familiar things and learn to find its place among the foreign boys and girls.For a blind child is a lot of stress.
