Feeling good on the first day back to school
(NC)-As the hazy, lazy days of summer come to an end and children start thinking about returning back to class, the "back to school blues" often to set in. They don't look forward to starting a new school year and may even develop a poor attitude towards learning. As parents, here are some simple ways to get them excited about starting a new school year:
Remind them of friends they haven't seen all summer: Seeing friends at school that your kids haven't seen all summer can make the first day back to school a good one. They love to share summer adventures and funny stories.
Prepare them with school supplies: Children feel good when they feel prepared. Equip them with notebooks, pens and pencils and other basics so they can feel a little more confident walking into their classroom.
Share with them that going to school is a privilege: Many children don't realize that children all over the world can't go to school because they don't have a classroom or books. Websites like www.ccfcanada.ca can give your children some perspective on their school experience by sharing stories of children growing up around the world. Children are often excited to know they can help other children get an education by sending school supplies to places like Africa.
