Holiday memories are falling behind. Now the moment demands a new challenge for the family: Entering or returning to school, school or day care.
The return to school
All this means more discipline, meeting schedules, buying clothes or uniforms, books, and a plethora of commitments that require an effort for both children and parents. For many of them, entry into school or back in the classroom represents a radical change.
Changes of life and new schedules for children
Year after year, the situation repeats itself and involves a considerable effort to readjust it. Adaptation or readjustment is a process, which usually lasts approximately one week. It provided the school and family environment is adequate. Everything will depend on the attitude of educators and parents.
Both parties will need to be prepared to convey to the children a positive impression. That it means to go to or return to school and to support them in the transition from vacation to school. To tackle this task, this material will help many families to charge the batteries. And also recover the illusion by the beginning of a new school year. In the end, everything is overcome, arranged and controlled, with some patience and understanding.
Holidays allow children to be more relaxed
Don’t hurry to go to bed or to get up early. So, when the alarm goes off again everything changes. Apart from schedules, the child will surely also face other changes: New teachers, new subjects, the new group of partners and, some, new school.
In any case
The parent’s mood should be essentially positive for their child. Especially because returning to school means returning to obligations: You have to study and do homework. These changes cause some alterations in the mood of the children and, although at the beginning, returning to school will be a great effort, with the passage of the days will be softening.
Speaking of changes
the most important will be the ones that will be experienced by children who will go to school or to kindergarten for the first time this year. They will go from being at home to sharing the school environment with other children and being under the responsibility of other people and subject to other rules.
Process of adaptation of the child to the school
When the child goes to kindergarten or school for the first time, we usually apply an adaptation schedule. So that, little by little, he becomes accustomed to the new reality. It all depends on the availability of time that parents have and the school rules. Although some parents prefer to leave the child in full daycare at the nursery from the first day. Others consider it beneficial to have a few days to expand this schedule, one hour more each day. For example, to adapt to the new reality.

It is essential for the child to count on the support and encouragement of his/her parents to enter or return to school or school. It is necessary that the family environment is favorable at home. So that, the child feels more secure and supported to adapt to their new rhythm of life.
