HOW TO PREPARE YOUR KIDS FOR BACK TO SCHOOL 

THE HOLIDAY IS ALMOST OVER, I bet it was all fun with a lot of family and friends having a swell time meeting one another, taking  holiday vacations, holiday classes/jobs and making new friends. Whichever way you had it this holiday break, time to go back to school has come.

Going back to school can be a big transitioning for both the parents and the child; while the parents had to think of the financial, involvement it will have as well as missing the kids,  for the child this becomes an emotional time especially for the ones who had had it fun filled; they will miss their favorite friends and fun activities while for the kids who did not enjoy it; this is a time they look forward to.

                     HERE ARE TIPS ON HOW TO BETTER GET THEM PREPARED

  • ANTICIPATE AND MANAGE YOUR CHILDS ANXIETY.

Understand that transitioning to a new school year after a long holiday could be a huge deal for your children, anticipate their anxiety and guide them into a happy transitioning. You can start 2weeks before the resumption date to include school-like schedules at home like setting bed times, lunch times and start a  bit of homework activities while still having their little fun activities.

 

  • MANAGE YOUR OWN ANXIETY:

YES going back to school puts a lot of pressure on the parents, from the financial pressure to the pressure of 'school run'. Many parents gets exasperated at this point and easily give out this impression to the children. Early planning and arrangements could help solve a lot of these anxieties
