The start of the school year can be a stressful transition for children and families. Summer often means late nights, sleeping in, and altered meal schedules. Returning to school or starting school for the first time means adjusting to earlier bedtimes, earlier morning alarms, and organizing the start of the day to get to school and work on time.
What can families do to ease the transition?
Create a predictable routine for morning wake up, meals, homework, and regular bedtime.
Look at your schedule for each week and look ahead for the following week's activities.
Prepare the night before for what to wear, breakfast, snacks, etc.
Try to stay calm and relaxed during times of stress for the child.
Talk with your child about what to expect and about how to handle big feelings of missing family during the school day.
What can families do if they have concerns about transitions?
Remind yourself that you are doing a great job and that stress from transitions is usually a phase.
Communicate with the school counselor to talk about concerns and solutions.
Elementary School Counseling
School Counselors are able to assist your child in 3 main areas: Social/Emotional Development, College/Career Readiness, and Academics.

- 1:1 Counseling
