Going to School Means Children Must Wait. (9-17-15)

Today’s Parenting Reminder:

You can help your child deal with missing special things because of school.

Make a list of the special things you know your child will miss while at school (blanket, toy, TV show, mom-time, a friend).

  • Assure her that her toys will be in their usual place waiting for her return. If there is a younger child still at home, let the school-age child make some toys off-limits.
  • Record a favorite TV show for when she can watch it.
  • Plan for special one-on-one time with mom or dad. Watching a favorite TV show together would be a good idea.
  • Plan for playtime with a missed friend.
