Cool about going back to school

While many parents are only too grateful when the back-to-school advertisements start appearing, the start of a new school year can be a traumatic time for many children.

While many parents are only too grateful when the back-to-school advertisements start appearing, the start of a new school year can be a traumatic time for many children.

Take action:
Get an early start on the first day (and an early night before), so that there’s time for a decent breakfast as well as the traffic jams on the first school day; sort out that school uniform at least a week before the start of term; pack a healthy lunch – an interesting lunchbox goes a long way to brightening up the first day; drop off your kids or walk them to school for the first few days – it shows them you care.
