Back-to-school with no stress? Make it happen!

When the warm summer months begin to wind down and the days become a little shorter, you can almost smell it in the air-back-to-school time is here! And, just as fall and cooler weather approach, so does back-to-school anxiety. Between kids fearing they'll miss the bus and won't make new friends, and parents feeling stressed abback_to_school_image.pngout hectic mornings and carpooling chaos, how can anyone get excited about the first day back to school? Parents, however, can set the tone for a smooth transition from summer to the new classroom by proactively addressing their children's concerns.

Here are a few tips to help ease your family's back-to-school anxiety.

  • Be enthusiastic. If you are excited and confident, your child will be, too.
  • Prepare yourself. Note your child's reaction to separation. If possible, visit the new setting together and introduce your child to the new teacher in advance.
  • Start daily routines. Encourage kids to become involved by packing their own lunch and laying out their clothes. Also, begin an earlier bedtime at least one week before.
  • Pack the night before. Kids should pack their book bag every night before bed. This eliminates the morning rush and trying to locate stray items.
  • Always say good-bye to your child. Be firm, but friendly about separating. Never ridicule a child for crying. Instead, make supportive statements like, "I know it's hard to say good-bye."
  • Send a photo of your family or writing a reassuring note and put it in your child's backpack or lunch box.
