Taking time to talk with and listen to your child about the
upcoming school year is one of the best ways parents can help their child transition
to school life.
Karen Sexton with Cincinnati Children's Medical Center gives
great advice on how to deal with children going to, or back to, school.
Preschoolers and kindergartners need to know what will
happen. Sexton suggests taking the child to visit their school before school starts.
Also, Sexton suggests talking to the child about a new school year, a new grade
level and a new teacher. New challenges come with each year.
Elementary school children will need to adjust to new
beginnings. Parents should allow their child some freedom to buy what they
want, such as trendy folders or pencils. Sexton also suggests taking a trip to
school before classes start to locate lockers and classrooms. She encourages a child's participation is at least one extracurricular activity or
Teens need positive reinforcement. Parents should help teens
set goals on how to get the best grades. Parents should also help keep teens
organized and encourage their teen to get involved. Sexton reminds parents to
keep the lines of communication open and to set aside family time at least
twice a week.
