Getting Back to School



Children love and hate to return to their school for the New Year. After a long period when they are used to playing at home and waking up late, they find it difficult to make it to school without sobs or tears. On the other hand, it is an exciting thing for them. Although they are still toddlers, they do feel excited to see similar faces around them. The fact that they get to mix with children of their age is something that shall always interest children. However, going back to school for children might be easy but it surely isn’t easy for the parents who need to prepare their wards to send them to school for the New Year.


Parents should make sure that when their kid is going to a new standard, he feels as if he is taking a new step. Children love wearing new clothes and carrying new bags to school. Right from their school socks to the eraser in their pencil box, they love it when everything that they have is new on their first day in the new class. Parents might have a difficult time getting everything sorted but it does help keeping in mind how moody children can be at times.


The morning blues are another thing that parents have to fight. Not only do they need to get up on time, they have to make sure that their children wake up as well. No one said that having kids and educating them was an easy task. Children, at the age of five, are too young to understand anything about their new class. For them, the most remarkable thing at the end of the day would be the new class teacher as they would wonder where the old one disappeared.

Children, at this tender age, are like the petals of a blossoming flower. It is important to nurture them properly. Getting back to school for the New Year can be a pretty daunting task for parents. Since they enter a new environment altogether, the onus is on the parents to make sure that their child feels settled. He should not feel out of place in his/her new class room. Parents might have a difficult time in getting their children to school before the bell rings but at the end of the day, it feels like a battle that has been won.

From the very first day itself, children are not too keen on going to school. At the age of five, it might still be a case of enjoyment considering the fact that they shall be admitted in a Montessori. However, children never want to attend school and the parents indeed have a very difficult time in carrying their children to school. A few mothers are seen running with their little kids whereas others are seen patiently sitting at the back of the bicycle that their dad is riding. Getting back to school isn’t easy for the numerous changes that parents need to bring about in children. At the end of the day, they are children and parents need to do all that they have to.
