Help your child get back into school routines when school holidays end.
Student success grows and flourishes when daily routines are practiced consistently. While school holidays are a much-deserved time for relaxation, fun and spontaneity, it is important for your child to get back into school-day routines as the holidays come to an end. Here a few things you can do to help your child make a successful transition back to school:
- Spend time reviewing your child’s before-school and after-school routines with him;
- Consider printing-out a detailed schedule for your child, including helpful visuals;
- Remember that a healthy after-school schedule includes time for homework, exercise and relaxation;
- Include a wake-up time, a bed time, and “technology off” time in your child’s schedule.
With more holidays coming at the end of this month, we’ll have to start the re-training process again!
