It’s almost time for school to be back in session, and if you haven’t started the transition process already, it’s time to get going, parents!
For the past couple of months, chances are your child’s routine has been more flexible. Perhaps they can sleep in later, or enjoy a random nap in the middle of the day. Maybe they have spent weeks on vacation away from their normal activities and friends. For kids who attend summer school or camp, the routine may not have seen much change, but the learning process is definitely adjusted in comparison to regular school. It can be hard for children to move from having less structure, more freedom, and lower expectations into an environment that is the exact opposite!
