We recently discovered, with the help of our son’s teacher, that he needs glasses. We survived the ophthalmologist appointment and will pick up the new specs in a few days. When the nurse walked me over to the wall of glasses and asked me what kind we would like, I asked for, “Whatever is the most indestructible.” She showed me ones that you can literally bend in half and they won’t break, thank goodness.
Do You See What I See?

Any tips from moms out there about glasses-wearing for young boys (Dash is a VERY hyperactive 4 year old who has sensory integration issues and often has very violent outbursts with flailing limbs). I read somewhere online that two good rules are:
Always take glasses off with both hands.
Always hand glasses to Mommy or Daddy.
After commenting on Red’s Olympic unit post, I realize that I will probably have to add various rules about not using glasses as weapons, lock picks etc.
I decided against getting a bunch of library books about getting glasses, wearing glasses, etc., because, with Dash, I think our best bet is to downplay. I’m more worried about how to keep them in one piece!
