HOW TO PREPARE YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL?

This article will appear useful especially for those parents, who are on the verge of making their decisions concerning sending their children to school. However, I hope the tips included here will help also those, who have some more time to thing about this crucial sphere of their and their children’s lives.

TEACH THEM SCHEDULES
Usually, children who attend preschools are familiar with various schedules. They have a schedule of the day that specifies what activity comes after which and that is super important when it comes to their later school life. As parents, you can continue certain order of to-do things also after preschool time. What I mean precisely, is homework. Even if your child does not have any worksheets to fill in that he or she brought from preschool, you can easily create them on your own. It is simply to make them aware of the fact that the thing called “homework” will soon appear in their lives and become a regular thing they will have to bear with. They will avoid the initial “shock” connected with it and will have time planned to exercise at home.

TEACH THEM TO EAT LUNCH 
Well…as my teaching experience shows me, the tendency for a child to become a fussy eater increases with age. When children are 2-3 years old, they eat their meals with huge appetite, but when they are six, they start being picky and claim to be full all day, even when they did not eat a thing  I guess it is typical, but encouraging them to eat lunch is always worth trying. For example by preparing colourful, yummy looking meals! Let’s be honest, even a sandwich can look amazing when we try. I am not going to describe it in details here, type “children lunch ideas” in Google and you will find tons of super creative ideas!

BE SUPPORTIVE
Nothing helps your child cope with the problems like a helpful hand. Ensure your little one that if anything appears on his or her way, you are always there to fight the obstacle with them. Also, discuss together, that it is only appropriate to talk about all of the unsettling situation happening in school with the family. This should motivate your child to always confess what is problematic for them, from the first moment of their school life, to the later stages of it.
