Parenting and Transitions with Young Children off to School for the First time: Guided Tips on How to Cope Effectively.


“It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself.”~Joyce Maynard

Techniques on how to help Parents Cope Effectively with Transitions with their Young Children attending school for the very first time:

  • Always have a positive mind-set. Hence, always know that everything will be alright.
  • If your in need of crying, let it all out. A good cry can be healthy for you. However, try not to cry in front of the child, you do not want to make the child feel bad, you want them to know it is ok for them to leave and do what they have to so they can experience life.
  • Reach out to other parents who are in the same boat as you. Such as friends, other parents in your child’s school, online, and so on…
  • Keep yourself busy. Find a favorite hobby such a exercise, volunteer, read, paint, knit, take a walk, meditate, creative projects or do whatever it is that you enjoy doing. Any free time you have, try and make it self-fulfilling, we all deserve it!
  • Be strong! Keep in mind that the more obstacles you overcome and pull through, the stronger of a person you will be!
  • Be there and support your child every step of the way.

“You don’t really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around – and why his parents will always wave back”. ~William D. Tammeus
