This is an article about Returning to School from Summer Break:

Back-to-school time comes with rich, teachable moments to support the social and emotional development of children.

So, if you are a parent, here is what you need to do:
  • Be self-aware! Focusing entirely on your child's transition overlooks your own feelings about transitions. They are tough for everyone. Knowing what you are bringing to the mix is important. Once you know it, you can work on helping your child develop his or her self-awareness.
  • Talking helps. A simple question like, "Any thoughts or feelings about school starting?" is an opening. Let the question hang there. You don't need to clarify or say more. Give them space to think and feel. If you have concerns about transitioning your child from summer to school mode, talk to your friends, a pediatrician or your child's therapist.
  • Structure time. Depending on your child's age, you can start implementing bedtimes and times for breakfast in the morning that slowly move back to school timetables. This is easy enough with children, but tough to do with adolescents who just have notoriously poor sleep hygiene.
  • And don't forget, if there is summer homework that needs to be completed (summer reading, projects, etc), then you may want to help schedule that for your child.
