After some good time off, without any schoolbooks kids may find their way back to school. a meeting with the new teachers before the school-year really start may be useful.

Too often the supermarkets are already trying to sell school-products from the moment school ended in June and by August the 1st their advertisements are shouting everywhere. Let you not be tempted by them and wait until you know from school what is really necessary. Learn your child to be happy with the free school material, like pencils, notebooks a.o.

When taking care that the child has the required night rest and gets stimulated to go for it, finding new friends, new material to learn, let it explore everything at its ease, giving it time to adapt to new situations.

To remember:

Breaking the ice early = best ways to calm everyone’s fears => get to know the school and schoolteachers ==> take advantage of the school’s open house or back-to-school night

Familiarize your child with her environment

try getting in contact with pupils from last year, refreshing relationships before school starts

obtain the class supply list and take a special shopping trip with your child => right tools =  feel prepared

get your child excited about upcoming projects

avoid last-minute drilling

ease into the routine = avoid first-day-of-school mayhem
