"Meekins philosophy: independence and self-reliance build self-esteem. Please allow your child this experience. Letting the floater escort the children from the car will ease the process of separation: it is easier for a child to leave a parent at the curb than to have the parent to leave him/her in the classroom. Floaters will be sensitive to children's needs or apprehensions, just as you will be when you are the floater. Of course the drop-off is not mandatory, and some parents prefer to walk their children into school, but the drop-off procedure works well for most families"
