How will your child get to school? Does he or she have the option of walking or bicycling? Are you able to walk or bike with your child? Promoting exercise, especially in the morning is a great way to get your child's brain ready for a day of learning. Also, ask your child's teacher(s) if there are frequent periods of getting up to move around a little bit throughout the day. This has been shown to help a lot with focus and attention as well as memory retention. It also may lower the risk for type II diabetes.


Make sure you ask your child how his day at school was frequently. Ask about his friends and how others treat one another and him. Be open to listening. Having a sit-down, TV off, family dinner can lead to very productive conversations and instill a sense of security at home.

Back to School Tips


-Remind your child that there are probably a lot of students who are uneasy about the first day of school. This may be at any age. Teachers know that students are nervous and will make an extra effort to make sure everyone feels as comfortable as possible.

-Point out the positive aspects of starting school. She'll see old friends and meet new ones. Refresh her positive memories about previous years, when she may have returned home after the first day with high spirits because she had a good time or about her favorite subject.

-Find another child in the neighborhood with whom your student can walk to school or ride on the bus. Promote walking or riding to school if you reside in a safe neighborhood. Remember the helmet if bike riding!

-If it is a new school for your child, attend any available orientations and take an opportunity to tour the school before the first day.
If you feel it is needed, drive your child (or walk with her) to school and pick her up on the first day.

-Taken in part from the AAP- ~American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) advises on back to school safety tips.
