Its that time!!! My son started back last week! You ready?!?! According to Wedmd parenting…
Check out these tips on helping your child prepare for Back to School!
1. Re-Establish School Routines-I know I know hard one lol
Use the last few weeks of summer to get into a school-day rhythm. “Have your child practice getting up and getting dressed at the same time every morning,”
2. Nurture Independence
Once the classroom door shuts, your child will need to manage a lot of things on his own. Get him ready for independence by talking ahead of time about responsibilities he’s old enough to shoulder.
3. Create a Launch Pad
“Parents and teachers should do whatever they can to facilitate a child being responsible,”
4. Set Up a Time and Place for Homework-Very important
Head off daily battles by making homework part of your child’s everyday routine.
5. After-School Plans
School gets out before most working parents get home, so it’s important to figure out where your children will go, or who will be at home, in the afternoons.
6. Make a Sick-Day Game Plan
Working parents also know the trials and tribulations of getting a call from the school nurse when they can’t get away from the office.
7. Attend Orientations to Meet and Greet
Schools typically hold orientation and information sessions before the start of each academic year.
8. Talk to the Teachers- this is a MUST
Of course, teachers are the reason your child is there.
