Make transitions easier
Transitions are difficult for many students, and this time of year triggers a shift in routine and activities. Many students (and many adults) feel most confident when they know what to expect. As your child begins the transition from school mode into summer mode, spend some time previewing what’s coming up. Doing so will reduce some of the uncertainty your child may be feeling while giving her the opportunity to ask questions and get a firmer handle on what’s in store day-to-day and week-to-week. A little extra time to process the upcoming shift can make all the difference.
