The happiest moment for most of the parents is when their child is ready to go to school. When your kid wears his uniform for the first time it’s just out of the World feeling. But along with this, it is also a big change in their life and they take time to adjust in it. Some children soon blend into this new place while some take a lot of time which really becomes difficult for parents. So, after talking to few mothers and teachers we tell you few tips to adjust your little one in preschool:
Make your child sleep on time
The first thing that you must do is maintain a calm environment at home so that your child sleeps on time. It’s better to make his habit of waking up early in the morning so that he does not show tantrums when asked to get up for school. Most of the children trouble their parents early morning because of inadequate sleep and then stay irritated during school hours.
Spend some good time
When Kids enter their school for the first time they find it difficult to stay away from parents. This at times also makes them feel lonely as they have not seen you for the whole day. So, the best thing you can do is spend a good time with them after they come back from school. Play games, watch movies together and ask them everything about their day at school.
Help your child to overcome his fears that he has for school. Adapting new changes and going to a new place is not easy so explore his school before the final day comes. Meet his teacher in advance and ask her about the activities and routine they will follow at school. This will give you an idea and you can prepare your kid in advance. Always talk positive things about going to school with your kids, this way it will have a good image in their mind.
First day at school
No doubt sending your child for the first time away from you is a really emotional moment for every parent, but you should know how to control it. Though kids are small but they are too smart and understand when you are in stress . So, instead of ignoring or not bidding farewell in fear of getting burst out, you should bid a happy goodbye to your child and praise him.
Interact with the teacher
A teacher plays a major role in your kid’s life and for his growth too. You should not hide anything from her; keep updating her about everything your child does. You should often meet her and share your problems so that she can find a solution to it. If your child s not happy and is troubling you for going to school then she is the best person you can talk to.
