It’s almost back to school time! Should we be preparing our kids?
Yes, definitely! For anyone, when there is a change in routine, there are bound to be some challenges. Back to school time can be stressful for both kids and parents alike. Kids have the summer to play, sleep, and visit with friends, without the confines of a classroom or regimented routine. We need to help kids prepare for school as well so they have the best chance at success.
When is the right time to start that preparation?
The right time to start preparing your children for the transition back to school depends a lot on each family.
Don’t feel too pressured about the time frame, it has to make sense for your situation. Many families vacation, host visitors, or attend special events during the summer, which can make it difficult to get back into any school routine. Enjoy most of the summer to relax, play, travel, and enjoy some family time (and self-time!). A couple of weeks before the first day back to school should give you plenty of time to go from late nights and sleep overs to early mornings and homework!
What are your top recommendations for that smooth transition back into a school day?
There are two things you can do that are vital to making the transition simpler and less stressful for everyone.
