For adolescents, moving from elementary to secondary brings its share of worries: forgetting a locker combination, making new friends, having multiple teachers, being among large numbers of students, not finding a class, more homework, etc.
10 simple and concrete tips to ease the transition:
- Buy a lock during the summer and have them practice using it.
- If possible, visit the school and locate the toilets, gymnasiums, locker rooms and classes (if possible, travel with them on the first day).
- Show them how to use an agenda and fill out their course schedule.
- Use a color code for school subjects (e.g., math = green).
- Determine a time and place for studying and equip them with the necessary supplies (a duplicate calculator, ruler, dictionary, lined paper, etc.).
- Find a place by the front door for their school bag on school nights so it is does not cause stress during the morning rush.
- Pay particular attention to folders (if they are disorganized, homework will certainly be lost).
- Buy small shelves to put in their locker and create more storage space.
- Take an interest in what he is doing his hobbies, concerns and ideas.
- Just listen to them!
