Going to school is a big step for kids, but also for parents. At Pulling Curls we have been in school since 2005, and Hilary has taken various PTO/PTA positions (including president) so, school is pretty important around here.
While these tips won’t work for EVERY family, they might help you brainstorm ideas that will work for you!
Having positive feelings both about school and about themselves (often by doing affirmations or positive self talk) can set kids off on the right foot!
Helping kids use their own tools to deal with bullies can help them stay positive and know that they can hand tough situations.
I have a whole kindergarten checklist for moms that details things MOMS can do to prep themselves for school (and frankly, a good reminder for a lot of us).
Getting organized both before and after school can really help kids succeed!
Of course, there are lots of situations at school. We even had to deal with a teacher strike!
