Today’s Parenting Tip:
This Parenting Tip is a reminder about things you can do to help your child get a good start at school this year.
- School pushes your child to grow up. But, growing up is hard to do. Growing up happens one step at a time and sometimes with one step forward and one step backward.
- Let your child know that you notice and like how he is growing up.
- But at the same time, remember your child still needs to be “young.” He might want to be cuddled or still have a special blanket or stuffed animal. He might want to play with old toys he liked when he was younger. He might have a tantrum or whine about something. Don’t worry, he’s using his grown up behavior at school where it is needed most right now.
