Catherine Cusumano. There is going to be a return of children in schools that have been closed for months. In the Unlock 4 guidelines, the government has announced to open schools for children of classes 9 to 12. After returning to school after such a long time, children can see a lot of changes. At the same time, children's classes in Vermont, USA, can be held under open-air tents, while in Carolina, children's desks are kept at a distance and place plasiglass between them.
Many parents are worried about the children going back to school, while many are excited when they return to school after a long time. In such a situation, let us know what should be prepared for the return of children to school.
Repeat good habits learned at home
Over the months, parents have taught children many good habits. For example, wearing a mask properly, washing hands and taking care of social distancing. According to Dimitri A. Krisatakis, director of the Center for Child Health, Behavior and Development, parents implement these habits from the very first day of school and encourage children to complete them properly.
Prepare for school as before
Allow children to lead
Make children knowledgeable with you
Parents should fully understand the school policy with the help of their children's teachers or school website. Make the children aware of this also. For example, tell them that their temperature may be checked when they arrive at school. If the child is afraid of these changes, then tell them that by following these things, they can keep their family and friends safe. Also, avoid increasing the burden of information on them.
Talk to children openly
Doctor Goslin asks the children to tell two things about the school while eating daily. The first is what they are excited about and the second is what they are thinking about. It is a way of knowing the daily situation. By including the teacher's help in this, you can easily find out the situation of the child and help them.
Doctor Goslin found that it may take a week or a month for the child to get mixed up in school. After completion of this time, consider it as an achievement in front of children. To celebrate this, children can be taken on a treat outside.
