If you have recently moved this summer or recently this fall and face the challenge of your kids starting a new school this year, there may be some hesitation and anxiety among your kids as they venture off to a new school. Weston Dean Custom Homes, a premier Boerne custom builder
, shares some tips on how to make going to a new school exciting for your kids and something for them to look forward too.
Moving into a new home in a good school district with good schools is every parents dream when it comes to having to move and relocate. Having that be one of the top factors of your new home search list can ease a lot of anxiety in the first place when it comes to uprooting your kids to new schools.
If you are juggling many responsibilities and the start of a new school is bearing down on you, it can be hard to make difficult decisions when you have just moved and have to sign your kids up at their new school or figure out what school is best for them in a short period of time. The best thing you can do for yourself is to take a deep breath and make a list of your priorities. If you make a list of things that need to get done from most immediate first to lesser immediate, then you can begin talking everything in an organized matter.
Keeping your kids involved and the line of communication open is a great way to allow their start at a new school to come with as little stress and anxiety, and even make them look forward to this new chapter in your family’s life.
A good idea to make the experience of moving and getting set in a new home and new schools, is to make your kids be a part of the experience. Be sure to talk to your children about the move and the new school that they will be going too. When you keep your kids involved in the moving process, it allows you to keep them in the loop and listen for any thoughts or concerns they might have about going to a new school, living in a new neighborhood and making new friends. Keeping an open dialogue and not allowing them to be in the dark is a great way to ease any anxiety they may have.
Having your kids be involved in not only the move, but the process of starting a new school will help them feel more prepared when they walk through the doors on their first day.
