Back To School!!!

Back to School Time!!!

It’s school time again! You’re probably feeling excited and maybe a little sad that summer is over. Some kids feel nervous or a little scared on the first day of school because of all the new things: new teachers, new friends, and maybe even a new school. Luckily, these “new” worries only stick around for a little while. Here are some tips that might be helpful for you, as a parent, as well as for your children:

  • Review all of the information and material sent by the school as soon as it arrives.
  • Make copies of all your child’s health and emergency information for reference.
  • Plan to re-establish the bedtime and mealtime routines (especially breakfast) at least 1 week before school starts.
  • If your child is young or in a new school, visit the school with your child. Meeting the teacher, locating their classroom, locker, lunchroom, etc., will help ease pre-school anxieties and also allow your child to ask questions about the new environment.
  • Try to get the supplies as early as possible and fill the backpacks a week or two before school starts. Some teachers require specific supplies, so save receipts for items that you may need to return later.
  • Check with your school to confirm dress code guidelines.
  • Designate and clear a place to do homework
  • Designate a spot for your children to place their school belongings as well as a place to put important notices and information sent home for you to see.
  • Freeze a few easy dinners. It will be much easier on you if you have dinner prepared so that meal preparation will not add to household tensions during the first week of school.

The transition from August to September can be difficult for both children and parents. Even children who are eager to return to class must adjust to the greater levels of activity, structure, and, for some, pressures associated with school life. Take things patiently, get informed, and stay involved in your children’s school always keeping in mind that every problem has a solution.
