There might be few instances of children who happily skip their way to school with a happy wave and ever look back. One needs to prepare the child well in advance, although you might feel initially that your child will be confident enough to tide through the phase.

One needs to firstly span through the various schools in the locality. The visit should involve talk to the teachers, sitting through their classes to get a feel of the place, to find the level of teacher’s involvement and personal attention tendered. An essential rapport with the concerned teacher is vital as otherwise there is no point sending your child there, no matter how good the school appears to be.

Take the child along for brief visits way before the start date of school, to acclimatize the child to the surrounding. Let the child get a feel of the place by letting her wander about and touch and feel the things around her.

On the first day of school be ready for a jittery start and be ready to be with the child through the morning to calm her. Initial sessions might need your presence for moral support, but as your child adjusts, eventually you might need to stay in the premises. Keep a track of your child’s reaction if you leave for some periods of time. If the child is distressed when you leave, make it a point to stay there, and yourself occupied with reading material. Just fit in with the schedule by seeing how the child reacts to small time periods of separation and gradually increase it.

The prime aspect being that the child should associate school with a happy place and not associate it with unhappiness of being separated from you and feeling alone. A good teacher confident of self and the child will tell you when it is not needed to stay back. Being over-protective with the child in school will only make it difficult for the child to cope without you.

Try to put the child to bed on time the previous night, as good sleep will help kick start the day on a happy note. Try to do something amusing or funny with the child about half hour prior to him starting school to help relieve the tension and make him in a happy mode. What your state of mind is will reflect on the child, so always have a happy disposition and try not showing how apprehensive you are, as your child will only pick the negative vibes.
