The transition back to school can be tough on all family members. A child’s routine is now discombobulated. Our own routines have been interrupted. What can you do to get everyone back on track? As caregivers and parents, we must be prepared to get back into routines to support our children:
- Reflect on the holidays with your child(ren), "We all had a good time, but now…"
- Re-establish your morning rituals
- Regain bedtime routines
- Revisit regular meal times
- Take a deep breath and know it could take a couple of weeks until everyone is settled
To learn more about how to partner with children during transitions, watch Ms. Peaches Lott in the video below.
