It's back to school time! You may be both happy and sad that summer is coming to an end. On the first day of school, some youngsters experience anxiety or even fear due to all the new things they will encounter, including new teachers, new friends, and possibly a new school. Fortunately, these "new" concerns only last for a short duration.
Your first chance to navigate a new school or become familiar with the routes to new classes at your current one is on the first day of classes. Don't be shocked if you need a few reminders because there is a lot to learn in one day.
Be Early To Bed
Reestablishing a regular sleep schedule for school won't occur immediately! Set up an early bedtime routine for your child a few weeks before they start school. Your child can unwind with gentle activities like a bath and reading before bed.
For kids, it's crucial to establish a reliable schedule. The routine's steps should be written down and practiced with your youngster. This might involve homework, playtime, brushing their teeth, taking a bath, and reading before bed in the evening.
Limit Screen Time
The start of the new school year is the ideal time to reinstate screen time restrictions. Why not "unplug" the entire family in the evenings before bed? Select a location where everyone may overnight charge their gadgets. Instead of using a cellphone to wake up in the mornings, use an alarm clock.
Include your kids in the selection and preparation of wholesome snacks and lunches. Find them enjoyable physical activities to engage in. Take them to the store to purchase nutritious snacks and lunch items. They can pack their own things. Try to eat at regular intervals.
Your children will view the move back to school as one they can genuinely appreciate if you celebrate the first day of classes. Consider hosting a back-to-school party with cake, balloons, and educational presents the day before classes begin. Don't forget to capture them in their first-day-of-school attire on the front step.
