Hello families, all right!
The memories of the holidays begin to be left in the memory and now the moment demands a new challenge for the family: to go back to school or to be entering a new school, and or nursery.
All of this requires more discipline, meeting schedules, buying clothes or uniforms, books, and a multitude of commitments that require both effort for children and parents. For many of them, entering school or returning to the classroom represents a radical change.
Each year the situation repeats itself and involves a considerable effort to readjust it. Adaptation or rehabilitation is a process that usually lasts about a week, provided that the school and family environment is appropriate. It all depends on the attitude of the educators and parents, who need to be working together at all times.
Both parties must be prepared to give the children a positive impression of what it means to come or go to school and to support them in the transition from holiday to school. To cope with this task, this material can help many families to recharge their batteries and regain their enthusiasm for the start of a new school year. In the end, everything is overcome, organized and controlled, with some patience and understanding.
Holidays allow children to be more relaxed, without rushing to bed or getting up early. So when the alarm goes off again, everything changes. In addition to the schedules, the child will certainly also face other changes: new teachers, new subjects, new group of colleagues and, some, new school .
The return to school means more illusions and commitments for the children.
It is very important for parents to stimulate positively, because going back to school means going back to obligations: you have to study and do your homework. These changes cause some changes in the children’s mood and, although in the beginning it will be a great effort, over time it will be a stimulus.
But, speaking of changes, the most important thing will be the one that will be experienced by the children who will go to school or daycare for the first time this year. They will leave home to share the school environment with other children and be under the responsibility of other people and subject to other rules. This is what will happen around here.

Process of adaptation of the child to school
When a child goes to kindergarten or school for the first time, it takes time to adapt to school, where they gradually get used to the new reality. This adaptation will take place in his time, without determining the timetable or rules.
How you can help your child get back to school
For both entry and return to school, it is essential that the child has the support and encouragement of the parents. It is necessary that the family environment is favourable so that the child feels more secure and supported to adapt to the new rhythm of life.
So parents should talk to their children about the new routine and convey confidence. It is necessary to highlight the positive changes and participate with them in the whole process.
Below I leave some tips on how to help:
- It is important that the child participates with his or her opinion in the purchase of school material.
- Do the identification of the school supplies together.
- Let your son choose the backpack.
- Help your child adjust to school hours a few weeks before school starts.
- Arm yourself with patience, especially during the first week.
