The first day of school can be tough for many students, and not only because it means having to study. Help your child prepare for it all with these tips.

Back to School Tips

As summer break gets closer to its end, students know that the time to go back to school gets closer by the day. While this thought in itself can be stressful, there are many other factors that can make the return to school even more stress-inducing. Luckily, as a parent, you have the ability to make your child's return to school less stressful and more manageable. To help your child prepare for the start of a new school year, implement some of these tips at home.

Practice School Routines

Returning to school can be tough for students whose routines have been drastically altered during the summer. Since most students are allowed to sleep in, stay up late, and have a generally structure-free day during their summer break, returning to their old routines can be hard. To help your child adjust to their school year routines, get started on this transition before summer ends.

Get Plenty of Sleep

One thing your child will benefit from during the school year is getting plenty of sleep every night. Sleep is important for all, and for students it can mean a better learning attitude, an easier time staying focused in class, and better memory. To achieve this, create a bedtime routine that will help your child fall asleep at the same time every night. It helps to keep electronics, like tablets and cell phones, out of their room since these have a tendency to interrupt sleep.

Make Time for Breakfast

You've probably heard this millions of times, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day. For students, a healthy breakfast can help them focus, improve their memory, and keep them alert during the school day. Ensure your child gets up on time every morning and that they have enough time to eat a healthy breakfast without rushing out the door.

Set an After School Routine

After the school day, your child probably doesn't want to do any more school work. Unfortunately, there's still homework that needs to be completed. To make this easier, create an after-school routine that keeps your child productive. Some students work better after taking a nap and having a healthy snack while others benefit from a snack and some outdoor time. Find the perfect combination for your child and set homework hours during which they can complete their homework and studying every day. If your child needs a bit more help preparing academically, tutoring in Franklin Park is a great option. Enroll them in tutoring classes at The Tutoring Center, Franklin Park NJ so that they can use their last few weeks of summer to get ready for class.

Use a Planner

If your child doesn't use a planner, introduce them to one this school year. Planners are the perfect tool for keeping track of homework assignments, test dates, project deadlines, and the important dates. It's a great way to stay organized and can help reduce stress caused by forgetting about an important homework assignment or test date. It may be hard to remember to use it at first, but with practice, your child will get the hang of it and reap the benefits of their new tool.

Beat Procrastination

Procrastination is a super common bad habit that many students struggle with during their academic career. Unfortunately, this means many students put off their work to the last minute and end up rushing through it. Not only do they not turn in their best work, they also stress themselves out and increase their anxiety levels. Encourage your child to get rid of this bad habit this school year. Setting homework and study hours every day will ensure they get their work done when it's assigned instead of leaving it for later. A planner can also help them split up their studying or work for a project among different days. It takes practice and commitment, but your child can definitely beat their procrastination habit this year.
