Secrets to School Success
Another summer is quickly fading and fall will be emerging shortly. This means another school year for many kids will start soon. I have heard parents give out a sigh of relief that their kids will be returning to school after having them under foot for the summer months.
And while parents may be ready, I wonder how many kids are not as excited to go back to school. Even when some parents think about it, they too wonder what this school year will hold for their child. School brings about different challenges for different kids. For some it is a constant reminder that they don't measure up to other kids. They are constantly comparing themselves to others and when they don't it puts them in a place of having to either agree that they just aren't as good as others or they have to resist it and prove that they are and this will show up with rebellious behavior. Either way, the child isn't free to just be him/herself.
Some children dread going back to school based on their past experiences. Maybe their last teacher didn't support them and now they have a fear about their up coming teacher. Of perhaps your child is one of those that gets picked on by other kids causing added stress. School is not only a place of academic education, it is also a place of social interaction and when a child is introverted, different and unsure of him/herself this brings up added anxiety.
So what can a parent do to assist their child to having more success in school both academically as well as socially?
