Good times don’t last forever and as your family holiday making draws to a close, you along with your children need to get acclimatized with the back-to-school schedule. So, if you’re a parent with school-going kids, there are an almost endless number of things you need to ensure the children are fully prepared to start afresh for a new year at school. Hence, the transitional phase when children try to adapt themselves for getting back-to-school can be exciting as well as harrowing for both parents and their wards.
Families will find all the tasks associated with the entire process of going back-to-school less back breaking and easier to achieve with a little foresight and organization. Here are some tips and tricks that will make attending the first day of the new school year a breeze.
1. Getting into the habit of maintaining a timely sleeping schedule
Children wait desperately for the summer holidays to start as they just can’t wait to get up wake up late from the bed. Therefore, you may really have to struggle to force the kids to get out of bed early in the morn so that they are not late for school. The way out is to put them to bed in time and setting the alarm to school morning at least a fortnight before the school reopens.
Acclimatizing your children to getting up a little earlier in the morning than they usually do just a couple of weeks before school restarts, will save you and them a lot of trouble.
2. Limit their gaming and TV viewing time
Medical professionals always maintain that watching TV, playing video games or engaging in any entertaining or pleasurable activity 2-3 hours before going to bed can interfere with one’s sleep patterns. Keep tabs on the number of hours the kids are hooked on the TV or engrossed in video games and put a limit on the number of hours they can keep aside for leisure. Switch off the TV long before they retire for the day and put them in the habit of reading a book or drawing pictures while they’re in bed.
3. Don’t neglect routine check up
Schedule an appointment with your kids’ pediatrician and make sure that they have been administered all the essential vaccination. Discuss with the medicine about keeping your progenies in the pink of health all through the school year.
4. A little organization goes a long way
Getting and staying organized is surely the most practical way to prepare the back-to-school program. Buy everything you need to, including but not limited to books, copies, geometry box, pencils, and pens well in advance. Keep all the school material in a bookshelf or cabinet in the kids’ room in an orderly manner to avoid clutter.
5. Check and cross-check school schedule and stationery materials
The school that the kids attend will deliver a package at home containing the class routine, the new class teacher, holiday schedule and so on. Take your time to scrutinize the information so that you stay thoroughly updated.
6. Fall Cleaning
