As fall quickly approaches, so does the new school year. If your child is feeling stressed out or anxious about their return to class, use these tips to help them be better prepared and less stressed.



How to Get Your Child Prepared for the Upcoming School Year

The first day of school can cause students plenty of stress and anxiety weeks before it even arrives. Since the summer is coming to a close quickly, start preparing your child for the upcoming school year. Simple preparation can be just enough to help them turn their stress and anxiety into positive energy.

Set New Goals

Help your child start the school year off with a solid plan by developing some new goals. Sit down with your child before the start of the academic year and define some goals they want to accomplish. Be sure these goals are specific, measurable, and attainable. You don't want your child to set themselves up for failure, but their goals should still push them to do their best. Create a plan for each goal so that your child has an easier time staying on track. It also helps to include checkpoints along the way where your child can check on their progress and make any necessary changes to their plans.

Talk About Expectations

It's not enough for your child to set some goals. It's also for you, as a parent. to be clear about your expectations. It's important for your child to enjoy their time in school, but let them know that it's also a serious matter. Their future opportunities can be defined by how they perform in school, so let them know that you want them to take their academics seriously. Have your child commit to doing their best and you can commit to doing your best to help them succeed. Communicate clearly with each other and don't forget to let your child know that they can count on you for support no matter what.

Back to School Shopping

Back to school shopping may not seem all that important, but it can help get your child excited for school. Don't shop for everything just yet since some teachers may ask for very specific items. Focus on getting the basics, like pens, pencils, erasers, notebooks, and other organizational tools your child can use at home. Let them pick out items they like so that they'll be more excited to put them to use. This can help your child turn that back to school stress into positive excitement.

Work on Summer Homework

If your child has some summer assignments to complete, check in on their progress before the first day of school arrives. You may be surprised to find they're behind schedule or haven't even started working on it. If this is the case, sit down with your child to create a plan that will help them get it all done before they're due to start school. If their friends have the same work to complete, encourage them to work together to get it done more efficiently. By working together, they can also have deeper discussions about the work and getting a better understanding of the material.

Work on School Time Routines

During the summer, most students get into the habit of going to bed late and sleeping in every morning. This can make their transition back to school much more difficult. Before their first day back in class arrives, work on developing school time routined and practice them in the weeks leading up to the first day of school. To start, have your child go to bed 15 minutes earlier each night until they're back at their regular bedtime. In the morning, have your child wake up earlier each day until it's no longer a huge struggle to get out of bed at a decent school-year hour. Finally, create an after school routine that will ensure your child's homework gets done in a timely manner daily.
