As summer vacation winds down, parents across the country prepare to send their kids back to school. And while it’s always an exciting time to help your little one prepare for their first day in a new grade, with a new teacher, knowing they’ll see old friends and make new ones, it’s important to set them up for success.
The transition from summer vacation to school can put pressure on children and parents. As a parent, you may worry about things like your child’s academics, overall health and relationships with teachers and other students. And while you can’t keep an eye on your child at school, you can encourage healthy habits and prepare them in other ways.
