Family routines changes during summer. Children sleep late, play outside until dark or sleep every morning. With the little preparation of the parents at home, remembering the school routine can be smooth for the child. Here are some ways how to prepare your child:
For children, new school year is usually greeted with mixed feelings of anticipation, excitement, and fear. So, it is important for the parent to ask how he feels about it. Give the child word of encouragement and ease any fears he may have.
Let your child practice school bedtime, getting up and getting dressed in the morning to establish a school routine. Start eating breakfast, lunch and snacks the same schedule in school.
Shop together with your child for the new school stuff. A few new intems can make them motivated and excited to be back in school.
Self-reliance includes having your child prepare their own clothes, packing their school bag or backpack and tying their own shoe laces for school. To the child it means being able to do things for themselves, being able to take care of their own simple needs, and being prepared to face new situations and cope with the problems as they arise. It results in self-confidence, high self-esteem, and a strong sense of responsibility.
Before the school starts, it is a good idea to socialize your child with other children, make sure that your child gets to spend some time with the other children in school.
