Once Upon A Child
Kids across the country are about to start the 2012-2013 school year. Emotions will range from pure excitement to apprehension as children either begin or continue their journey into the world of classrooms, teachers and homework. If your family hasn't begun the transition from summer vacation to school day routine it's not too late to start!
Creating a daily routine, before school starts, can help parents and kids work through any adjustments that need to be made before deadlines have to be met.
Begin by adjusting sleep times. Move bedtime back to an earlier time and set an alarm for waking up. Children and adults need a good night's rest to be able to think and perform at their best. Most kids between 5 and 12 get about 9.5 hours a night, but experts agree that most should be getting 10 or 11 hours each night. Teens need about 9.5 hours of sleep a night. Of course, sleep is an individual thing and some kids need more or less than others. You know your child best and can adjust accordingly.
During the summer months mealtimes can fluctuate a lot. Begin having meals together at times that will work with the school year schedule. Cut back on snacking throughout the day and experiment with quick and healthy meals. If your child will be taking their lunch to school, now is a good time to start planning what those lunches will be.
Discuss after-school activities and create a schedule of who will need to be where at a specific time. A calendar or chalkboard in the kitchen, with everyone's schedule, is great for keeping track of each day's events.
Another area where a summer routine may change during the school year is children's chores and responsibilities. Adjustments may need to be made depending on after school activities and homework. By starting the new routine now you can get your child's input on what they think they can handle - see how it goes - and make any changes you think will help make the transition a little easier.
