I am a parent of a young child who will be starting school soon. As a first-time parent, I am quite nervous and not sure how best to prepare my child for this big transition. I am hoping to get some advice and tips from experienced parents on how to make this process smoother for both my child and myself.
Some of my specific concerns include making sure my child is emotionally and socially ready to handle the changes that come with starting school, and also making sure they have the necessary academic skills to succeed. I am also wondering if there are any practical steps I can take to prepare my child, such as visiting the school beforehand or getting them accustomed to a routine.
Any advice or personal experiences you could share would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
