Tending to the back-to-school jitters
The anticipation of 'back-to-school' brings excitement and anxiety
to both parents and children -- particularly if children are just
starting primary or secondary school or have moved to a new
Children are confronted with first-day jitters, coupled with the anxiety
of new routines and schedules.
However there are a number of ways you, as a parent, can attempt to
make the first day and week, a smoother and therefore less stressful
Children who have previously been more than happy to wave goodbye
once at school may become anxious about their first day back,
particularly after the Christmas break. Six to eight weeks is a long time
to have been away from school and add to this the fact that in most
cases they will be entering a new classroom with new classmates and a
new teacher; children can understandably be feeling slightly anxious.
Normally they will have been told which class they will be in at the
beginning of the next school year and who their teacher will be. This
will have given them a chance to figure out how many of their
close friends will be in their class the following year and what
their teacher is like.
If your child is going to be taught by a new teacher to the school
and they are particularly concerned about this, it might be a
good idea to schedule a visit with the new teacher before the
school year or term begins.
If your child is new to the school it is important to take them to
school for the first few days. Give yourself plenty of time to arrive,
have a look around and meet some of the other children and
A good-bye ritual is another important aspect and can work
wonders. Tell your child you love them and to have a great day.
Be as positive and cheerful as you can as this is certain to make
your child feel more comfortable.
Goodbyes can be very difficult but every child is different; yours
may surprise you.
Eating healthy for the new year
Establishing the habit of eating a
healthy breakfast before school is
paramount as breakfast is the most
important meal of the day.
As there is such a large break between the
evening meal and breakfast it is important
to refuel the body to kick-start the day and
children in particular need breakfast to give
them energy, giving them the ability to
cope with the day ahead.
Eating breakfast also helps with controlling
children's weight as they are less likely to
snack during the day. If your child does not
have breakfast they will
probably eat a large
portion of their lunch at
morning tea and then
require more snacks
Breakfast has also been
proven to be a great
aid in concentration
and mental perform-
ance, ensuring your
child is able to make
the most of their
opportunities and work
to the best of their ability at school.
Breakfast foods also tend to be a great
source of fibre, carbohydrates and a wide
range of vitamins and minerals, all
necessary nutrients in a child's healthy daily
Establish a breakfast routine with your
Avoid distractions -- Don't turn the TV on.
Some children may need some time
between getting up and having breakfast --
don't rush them straight to the table. It can
actually be more relaxing for them to have
got dressed and organised, then to sit and
enjoy the meal.
Encourage eating something small -- the
important thing is to eat
something at this time, perhaps a
piece of fruit. Once the routine is
established it is easier to increase
the range or volume of foods
There are a wide range of
ing on your child's
likes and dislikes
and also the time
you have available
to prepare. Break-
fast cereals are a
with a good num-
ber high and fibre
and with sufficient
energy. Fruit and
yoghurt can be a simple addition
to cereal if required.
If your child prefers a bread based
breakfast there are a wide range
of choices, from simple toast and
fruit toast to crumpets, bagels and
English muffins. Topped with their
favourite spread, this is an easy
and filling option.
Fruit (raw or canned), yoghurt, a
smoothie or if time allows a cooked
breakfast are other suitable options for your
growing child and to finish make sure they
have a drink of milk or water before
heading off for a big day at school.
