How Does a Child Feel on the First Day of Kindergarten

By Osawebmastersix Subscribe to RSS | December 23rd 2011 | Views:

Child’s psychology is hard to understand. Since they are quite unstable by nature, it becomes tough to predict their next move. Parents often become worried when their kids show their reluctance to go to school in the initial period of their educational career. This reaction is expected from every child because they go through a complete transformation of routine life. However, you can find ways to make the sudden transition simpler for your kid.

Try discussing kindergarten with your kid a few weeks before the school commences. Express your eagerness and excitement in everything that your child is going to learn. Talk to your child and try to get responses to check what her state of mind is. That also does not mean that you will overdo it and also don't roam around the bush, if you find your child not paying attention or seems reluctant to talk about it. The main intention should be to make kindergarten something of very excitement to go to, rather than something to be afraid of.

To give a trial before your child starts going to school, leave the tot with a relative or a close family friend’s house, or you can also suggest your kid for a sleepover with grandma. This will give you a rough sketch of how your child will react on being left alone in the school on the first day. You must try to get your kid accustomed with an environment of strangers.

There are some schools that hand out phone lists for every class of students before the school session commences. If you can collect such a list then try planning play dates with your kid’s future classmates. This way your child will find some familiar faces in the school that the toddler has already met outside the school before. You can also try other tricks like giving your children a token from home. Ask your kids if they would like to take something from home along with them on their first day of the school. Make them feel free to choose something comforting such as a sticker or a toy car or doll. The company of a well-known thing can give the children a sense of security in the new atmosphere.

Help your kids to get oriented with the school environment. Visit the school on the first day with your child and introduce the little one with a few of the teachers and also show the tot where the toilet, playground, lunch area, etc. are. Don’t forget to introduce your child with a few of the teachers, so that the child can share problems with the teachers.

It is pretty natural that your children may get anxious when you are about to leave them alone in the school on the first day. At that point of time, do not scold or ridicule them and even do not try to bribe them to behave them in a well manner. Rather tell them politely that they will get to learn a lot if they stay in the school for a few hours without their parents. When you are about to leave, don’t let your child understand that you are also feeling bad. Say a good bye with a broad smile on your face and tell your kid that you will come back after three or four hours.
