Back-to-School and Grandchildren

Back-to-school season is upon us. Your grandchild may feel excited about starting kindergarten or first grade, but he or she may also have some concerns about leaving home each morning or meeting new people at school. Try talking with your grandchild before classes begin so that he or she knows what to expect when he or she arrives at school each day. | Back-to-School

Here are some tips to get your grandkids ready for the school season:

1. Make sure your grandchild knows where they’re going and how to get there. If you live far away, help them make arrangements with someone else in the family who can give them a ride to school.

2. If you live close by, make sure they know how to get to your home on their own if something happens along the way.

3. You can help your grandchild get ready for the start of school by having a special “back to school night” just for the two of you.

4. Consider going shopping together and buying clothing and supplies that will help him or her succeed in class.

The first day of school is an very exciting time for parents, grandparents and kids alike, but it can also be a stressful one as well. Remember that they might be nervous about meeting new people or being separated from their friends — or even from their parents — for the first time in years! Be patient with them during this transition period; don’t expect them to be perfect right off the bat.

One thing you also can do, is make sure your grandchild has all the supplies they need for class, including paper, pencils and a backpack that fits comfortably on their back so they don’t feel like they’re carrying around a ton of weight every day.
