“Good luck is a residue of preparation.”
― Jack Youngblood, American football player
COVID-19 disrupted the world as we know it. It also changed the face of education as we moved away from classrooms and on to online lessons. Making this transition was not easy to say the least. It required everyone — parents, students, and teachers — to adapt to the new normal.
Now that schools are in the process of reopening, we must prepare the children for this change to make it easier for them to move back into physical classrooms. Though, it seems like the children are reverting to the same old physical classrooms that they are used to from digital classrooms, this is not the case as things have shifted fundamentally. Now that children have spent considerable time away from the traditional school environment, they need to be gently guided back to school.
That’s why we have curated tips that will help parents prepare their child for the school reopening.
A paper published in 2020, in the journal of Behaviour Analysis in Practice, titled Returning to School: Separation Problems and Anxiety in the Age of Pandemics, mentions a few parenting tips that can help parents make going back to school less stressful for their children.
Children look up to their parents to understand how to react during stressful situations. Teaching children how to adapt to new situations is critical. We are hopeful that the aforementioned strategies will help you support your child and help your family to thrive in this new normal.
