So parents, I would ask you to share this article with your children, and please let them know that on the home page of our website we have great resources for parents, teens and kids. Donna tells me it’s full of informative articles written at every level.
As parents, we need to understand that sometimes our children are more comfortable reading about an issue they may be experiencing,g rather than talking to a parent or a friend. That is why we rely on healthykids.org as a primary source for topical articles in pediatrisc.
I hope your kids will find this article on returning to school helpful. It certainly has been a while sinceI have had to deal with my daughters returning to school! But, I am very fortunate to have grandchildren ranging from elementary school through college, so you can imagine the variety of stories I hear!
I want to wish all our Pedimedica patients and the children of our wonderful staff a happy and healthy school year!
All the best,
A Bad Start?
- Get enough sleep.
- Eat a healthy breakfast.
- Try your best.
- Use good work habits, like writing down your assignments and turning in your homework on time.
- Take your time with school work. If you don't understand something, ask the teacher.
- Keep a sense of humor. One teacher we know shows his new students a picture of himself graduating high school — a grinning ape in a red graduation cap and gown. This usually makes the kids laugh, and it's a good way to remind them that school is fun!
