It’s that time of year again! Children are headed back to school soon, and it can be difficult to adjust from the usual summer schedule. Every child is different, but we believe these tips can help all children adjust to their new back-to-school schedule.

 

  • Start a bedtime and morning routine.
    • It’s easy to be more flexible and lenient during the summertime. For 2-3 weeks before school begins, start implementing a consistent routine in the mornings and evenings to get your child ready for the year ahead.
  • Tell stories of what school will be like.
    • Talking about what school will look like can ease the worries of an anxious child. This allows them to mentally and emotionally prepare for the year and get excited to make new friends, memories, and learn.
    • Preview the school calendar with your child and point out special events/days they can look forward to in the upcoming year.
  • Plan a playdate with a classmate before school starts.
    • This creates a way for your child to get a glimpse of the fun they will have in school with their friends.
    • Now your child has a friend with a familiar face to help them acclimate to their new class!
  • Talk about their goals for the year.
    • Communicating about goals allows your child to think about ways they can improve and grow during the school year.
  • Let them know it’s OK to feel nervous.
    • Reassure your child that it is OK to feel nervous. Giving them permission to feel this way allows them to feel their feelings and work through any nervousness they are holding onto.

 

At Pediatrics Plus, we aim to give parents every tool possible to assist in proper development for their child. With these tips, you can be a part of your child’s development each day. We hope you all have a positive 2022 school year!
