Making the transition from summer to school can be difficult for students and their parents. Here are a few quick ways to make this transition easier:
Re-Establish School Routines
Re-establish school routines a couple weeks before school starts. Routines may include waking up and eating breakfast and lunch around the times your child will when school is in session. Establishing these routines will make it easier for the student to adjust when school begins.
