It is hard to believe summer is almost over. Here are a few tips to ease back into the school year, stress free..
- Create a routine the week before the child returns to school. This reduces worry and stress, which is why establishing back-to-school procedures are important. For example, helping your child brush their teeth before they go to sleep, laying clothes out before they sleep and having earlier nights to prepare for the early mornings is a great way to prepare.
- The morning routines are equally important, with the child waking up on time, getting dressed and being ready to leave on time. Things are bound to go much smoother if the child is aware of what to expect.
- Reconnecting with friends in the child’s classes help ease anxiety and really helps to break the ice for children. A late summer get together can give children confidence when returning to school.
- Designate a spot for backpacks, have a place to write things that you cannot forget and be sure to have one place for all school related things, such as stationery, paper etc.
