Back 2 School: Making The First Day Easier


Whether it’s your child’s very first time back in the school setting, or if it’s just the first time after several months away, that first day can be a stressful time. The American Academy of Pediatrics has come up with a quick list of things to do to make the first day back to school easier on your kids.

  • Remind your child that she is not the only student who is a bit uneasy about the first day of school. Teachers know that students are anxious and will make an extra effort to make sure everyone feels as comfortable as possible.
  • Point out the positive aspects of starting school: It will be fun. She’ll see old friends and meet new ones. Refresh her positive memories about previous years, when she may have returned home after the first day with high spirits because she had a good time.
  • Find another child in the neighborhood with whom your youngster can walk to school or ride with on the bus.
  • If you feel it is appropriate, drive your child (or walk with her) to school and pick her up on the first day.
