With most students headed back to school, here are some tips to remember!
It is important to get back into a routine, that includes going to bed at a reasonable hour. Many times in the summer months, people tend to stay up later and sleep later in the mornings.
Watch their back! From math to history, textbooks seem to be getting bigger and bigger. Make sure you choose a backpack that is made of a sturdy, lightweight fabric with wide, padded straps. Backpacks should not be too heavy.
It is important to talk about safety again. Such as using crosswalks, talking to strangers, etc.
Make sure to talk about first-week anxiety. The start of a school year is new and everyone has some anxiety about starting something new. Make sure your child feels comfortable expressing how they feel.
Most of all ensure you maintain an open dialogue so you can talk about how things are going at school.
