A child’s first day at school can be traumatic for the child and the parents.


It need not be so though. Here are some handy tips to make the day smooth sailing:


• Your child might be nervous but unable to communicate it. Create a secret signal that will comfort him or her. For example three squeezes of the hand might mean ‘I love you’.


• 
Do not give your child a drink for lunch that is difficult to open or ‘new’ or ‘strange’ food.


• At home practice eating out of a lunchbox and throwing things into a bin.


• Supply at least two telephone numbers to the teacher in case the school needs to contact you.


• Make sure all your child’s medicine is packed and that the teacher is informed about it.


• Meet and chat to at least one new parent.


• Make sure your child uses the bathroom when instructed to so in class, even if he or she is convinced they do not need to.


• Label absolutely everything.


• If possible teach your child in advance how to write his or her name.\\


• Empty your child’s bag everyday in case the teacher sent a note.


• Your child will possibly be tired on the first day so allow for a nap after collection.


• When you leave your child, explain you will be back to collect him or her at the place you separate.


• Do not worry if they cry. Tears are normal and it does not mean you are a ‘bad’ parent.


• Only cry when you are out of sight.
