By: Westchester Health Pediatrics
KATONAH, N.Y. - July 21, 2015 - PRLog -- Westchester Health Pediatrics (WHP) today launched its new “Back To School Guide: 10 Key Things Parents Should Know As Their Child Returns To School.” A valuable resource for all parents of school-age children, this knowledgeable guide offers practical advice, guidance and educational information from WHP’s own pediatricians.
The back-to-school season can be exciting, stressful and everything in between. Whether parents have a kindergartner just starting out, a teen in high school or a son or daughter heading off to college, back-to-school is full of parenting challenges. To help make this time of year easier, the “Back To School Guide” offers practical advice on how to:
Get your child ready for school — whatever grade he/she is entering
Make the transition to middle school easy
Get your college student off on the right foot
Special ideas for you, the parent, as you too prepare for back-to-school
“The start of a new school year is a time of exciting possibilities but it can also be a very stressful time,” says WHP pediatrician Lauren Adler, MD, FAAP. “A new year is a big jump for children, both academically and socially. They are often afraid of the unknown, or feel unprepared for the changes that lay ahead. Parents can also get anxious at this time, not wanting to ‘let go’ as their children grow and mature. That’s why we wrote this ‘Back To School Guide’ and we hope that the tips and advice it offers will make it easier on parents and their kids during this emotional time of transition.”
With all of the back-to- school stress for parents, their children and their friends there are some quick tips from the pediatricians which parents can immediately put into action. Some of these include:
Attitude Matters — Keep Smiling!
Balance is Better — Try to keep it all in perspective
Calm — Take a deep breath
Discipline — Kids are expecting it, don't fail them
Flexibility — Try thinking like your kids do
Laugh A Lot — Remember, Keep Smiling!
