Are we ready for our child's first day of school? OMG, it's next week!
We parents need to know about this!
5 Do’s & Don’ts when we send our child to school !
1. Get them to bed early! Check out, how many hours does your child needs >>
2. Wake them up with a happy face and exciting stories about how great it’s going to be at school today!
3. MUST eat the most important meal of the day, Breakfast! Be it just a cup of milk or a slice of bread as long as they’re healthy. The body needs these essential nutrients and research shows that if these are missed at breakfast, they are less likely to be compensated for later in the day.
4. Tell them how proud you are, to see them all set for preschool/playschool. And they’re going to rock it!
Talk to them! They’re never too young or too old. This positive talk in the morning could set their happy mode for the whole day!
5. Last but not least a sweet kiss on the forehead before they enter the school would be such a great reminder that mommy & daddy are always in their heart
1. Do not wake our child up with a nag or a high tone voice. This would really spoil their mood for the day. Hey, we adult would feel the same way too right?
2. Never ever feed them “junk food” or anything sugar sweets in the morning! Watch this video and you’ll understand >>
3. Do not tell lies to our child, always treat them as an adult when it comes to communication. If they refused to go to school just tell them how important it is, even though we have to repeat it every day for a month or two. Rather than, telling something like:
“I’m not going to leave you, I’ll just wait for you here (the office/stairs/gate/car)
Or I’m just going to the toilet for a while” (then jump out through the window)
No such thing as "Tipu Sunat" in parenting. Trust me, we don’t want to ruin that trust and by doing that the war will even get worse!
4. Avoid visiting our child during the day. Don’t’ worry, they’re doing just fine without us..
This video will make you understand. God Willing
5. Do not fetch them with a grumpy mood or shut them up when they’re trying to tell us what they’ve learned in school. No matter how tired we are, put an act into it and listen to them like how we want to be listened. Some children, they're an auditory learner. So, by having them re-explaining everything that they have learned is like, they're doing their own revision/homework with their own method.
