It’s has been almost a week since the children has been back to school. Everyone from a child, parents, teachers and others who has a direct and indirect relation to the educational system has tremendously adjusted.
Specifically each child expresses their mixed emotions prior, during and after their classes. These has impacted in playing a vital dominant effect as they’re transitioning at school and home.
Precisely, it is understandable to posed an overwhelming reactions to them. Thus, being with in a new environment, teachers, classmates and school systems they are engaging with can be challenging too. As parents, we must open our mind, heart and ears correlated to their shortcomings. We should listen to their concerns and emotions on how they perceived such experiences at school and anywhere. Oftentimes, due to undesirable issues and in connecting to various personnel at school, has an effect of not wanting themselves to be back at school.
So, as parents you have to be an active advocate for your child by involving yourselves to the soonest possible solution you must do. We want our child’s education experiences to be fun as it can be!
