How’s school going? Are you back in the saddle and comfortable in the new routine or were you thrown off the course by unexpected challenges? If you are part of the latter group, don’t despair – you are not alone!
The lengthy summer break is long enough to form new habits in your kids that now might take just as long to change again. You may also notice that now that school is underway, your kids are changing! The strategies that worked so well last year may be a flop this September, while newly-learned and unexpected behaviors might present themselves just as you thought you had things under control! To make matters worse, September has a number of school holidays, which can throw off the newly-established schedule.
All this makes for a hard adjustment for both parents and kids.
