SOME ADVICE FROM OUR MUMS FOR YOUR FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!
Little by little your baby is growing up… You have experienced their first words, their first steps, their last nappies and you are now going to discover their first days of school!
Your toddler’s first day of school! What??? Already?😲😲😲
Yes, the big day is here: your toddler is about to set off for their first day of school 😱. This long-awaited day is also one that you have fretted over! It’s a special day because your child, just like you, will experience big changes in a very short time and will take his or her first steps on the long path to independence. A good number of new faces and new people will suddenly appear in their quiet little lives!
So, we thought that you, those parents who are about to experience this important step for the first time, might need some valuable advice to face the big day in the best possible way; the day when your toddler lets go of your hand for an entire day and the cord is cut for the second time…
(And it will bring back a few (pleasant) memories for the rest of you😉)
It only took a simple message to our group of loyal customers for dozens of mums to share their experience of this first day of school with us. Not one, not two; we noted everything and this is the advice they gave for a successful first day of school!
BEFORE THE DAY :
- Take advantage of the last moments of the summer holiday together to do as many activities as possible so that you won’t regret it later! 🤗
- Talk to your child about school in advance, try to discuss it with them and reassure them.
- Teach them to become more independent and to fend for themselves.
- If possible, teach them to spend a day without mum or dad, entrusting them to other trustworthy persons.
- Prepare their school things a few days before, including their little schoolbag and have them carry it so they can get used to it. 💼
ON THE DAY :
- Plan for a comfortable, simple and effective outfit, like these LOOK PHOTOS.
- Don’t worry – stress is communicative, so keep calm! ☮️✌️
- Once you arrive at school, let your child play with the other kids and tiptoe away.
- Or decide on a big hug before you leave.
- Set your alarm to get up earlier than usual!
An extra tip: provide for a packet of paper handkerchiefs (for yourself…😉)
