Back-to-School Checklist for Parents
Encourage open dialogue with your child or teen about their feelings surrounding school. Reassure them that any worries they may have are normal and validate their emotions.
Gradually re-establish school routines before the first day to ensure a smooth transition from a relaxed summer schedule to a more structured one.
If possible, visit the school with your child or teen before it starts, as exposure and familiarity can help ease their anxiety.
Highlight the fun aspects of school, like reuniting with friends and learning new things.
Remember that self-care is crucial. You may find yourself scrambling to take care of others, but prioritizing your health is important, too. Engage in activities you enjoy, carve out calm moments for you, and seek support from loved ones when needed.
