It seems that only recently my daughter went to kindergarten. And she is already in the second grade! How quickly time flies! A year ago, she was so afraid to go to school! And I was worried about how her adaptation would pass, and tried to do everything that depended on me so that my daughter would go to school with pleasure.
Now that we have gained experience, I want to share with you, dear readers, advice on how to make child’s adaptation to school as easy as possible.
1. Do not load the child. Often parents, having felt that the child has matured, decide to give it to some circle, to be in business, to learn something new, do not have time to wander aimlessly along the street, etc.
For some reason, this desire appears to the parents just after graduation from kindergarten, and in September a new life begins for the child. A large load and a completely new environment sometimes leads to the fact that the child loses interest both in learning and in the world as a whole, and it is also fraught with headaches and other symptoms of overstrain.
It would be better if the child starts attending a circle or section, or before grade 1, or in the second semester, when he adapts to school.
2. Pay attention to the child. When my daughter went to the first class, she sharply began to complain that I was spending little time with her. After school, we did homework together, then she watched cartoons or played with her friends in the yard, and before going to bed she complained that we spent too little time together.
I realized that I need to correct the situation. After classes, I set aside half an hour to rest in an embrace, lying on the couch, secretly reading a book or even playing with dolls. Still, do not forget that the interests of the child should not be reduced to the school curriculum.
3. Praise the child. Even if your child doesn’t do everything, the letters do not want to line up with a neat line, or 2 2 turns out 6, do not scold him. Excessive severity threatens that the child closes from you, and hates his studies with all his heart.
Help your baby, be patient, because it will take a lot! Every time a child fails, say that he will succeed, that you believe in him. And never compare your child with others, even if Masha reads faster, and Vanya does know the multiplication table in the first grade.
I hope, dear readers, that the adaptation of your children to school will be easy and cloudless! What tips can you add to my topic?
