Every kid will find school, especially the first day, a frightening challenge. Seems like the little school girls and boys have so much to lose; no more pampering, siblings, sleeping late, morning cartoons, and the list goes on. The following tips will help prepare them in advance:
- Teach them to take directions
In kindergarten, your kid either becomes the pacesetter or the kid who is dragged along by the others. Tune his/her brain to be proactive by giving simple tasks such as clearing toys from the floor.
- Social skills
Kids learn so much when socializing with others. New words, better word pronunciations, and sharing are just a taste of what they will learn from others.
- Initiate them to change earlier
A single play night away to a friend’s house will teach your child to live in a different environment other than that of home. You could even enroll them in a daycare or a kid’s gym for at least one hour during the weekdays. Assuredly, broad minded kids look forward to school every single day.
