Parents Corner


Attitudes to school can vary widely at different stages but PRE-SCHOOL is the first time your child attends school and is exposed to a new environment. You, as a parent, can help the adjustment by practicing a few rules to make your child’s “going to school” a happy experience.

  • To reduce separation anxiety, play games like hide and seek or peek-a-boo to help him/her understand this phenomenon of separation.
  • Explain to your toddler what to expect if you are going out and when you are going to be back.
  • Be positive to reduce  separation anxiety. Leave with a smile and don’t be nervous
  • Curb your own separation pangs because if you are having trouble separating, your child will always pick this up.
  • Remember that your child may have a very different (perhaps better)experience than you did.
  • Talk about your time at school in a positive manner.

These guidelines will help your child be more independent, happy and secure. Remember the more secure you feel, the more confident your child will be.

  Communication Strategy:

There isn’t one right way, one perfect question, or one right time to have these conversations. Here are some suggestions you can try:

  • Greet your child with an enthusiastic hello. Try saying, “great to see you” or, “I missed you” or simply, “I hope you had a good day” instead of “How was school”?
  • Listen before you talk. Let your child lead you into a conversation.
  • Don’t pester your child with questions, as some children don’t like to talk the minute they walk in. He/she will open up shortly.
  • Learn about your child’s life at school.
  • Try communicating without words as many children might prefer to reconnect with a hug.
REMEMBER: Talking is our way of communication but if we do it on children’s terms we might get to know them better.
