The beginning of the school year is always a mix of emotions for me. On the one hand, I’m excited for my kid to start a new chapter and learn new things. On the other hand, I’m sad to see summer come to an end and I know that there will be some challenges ahead.
One of the biggest challenges is getting my kid back into a routine.
After a long summer of sleeping in, playing all day, and eating whatever they want, it can be tough to get them back on a regular schedule. But I know that a good routine is important for their health and well-being, so I’m committed to helping them get back into it.
Another challenge is helping my kid adjust to new teachers and classmates. This can be especially difficult for younger children who are shy or have social anxiety. I try to talk to my kid about their new teachers and classmates ahead of time, and I encourage them to be open and friendly.
Here are a few tips for moms on how to survive the beginning of the school year:
Make a list of everything you need to do before school starts, such as buying school supplies, getting new clothes, and packing lunches.
Set a routine.
Go over the school schedule with your kids and help them create a daily routine that includes time for homework, chores, and free time.
Talk to your kids about all the things they’re looking forward to about school, such as making new friends, learning new things, and participating in extracurricular activities.
There will be some bumps along the way, but it’s important to be patient with your kids as they adjust to a new routine.
The beginning of the school year can be a stressful time for everyone, but it’s also a time of new beginnings and possibilities. With a little planning and preparation, you can help your kids have a successful and enjoyable school year.
