It’s back to school time, 2021 style and everyone’s excited and nervous at the same time. The first day of school is a right of passage and emotionally rough for students and parents.
There are a few things that can help both, but nothing helps as much as a warm hug and “I love you!” as they walk into school or to the bus.
But remember this, the first day of school is always rough on parents, even when they grow up and head off to college, but those mixed feelings will pass.
Remember that your child is safe and will be okay, that they will grow to love spending time at school and making new friends, and that you will see them grow, thrive and develop in all sorts of fantastic ways.
When they come home and you see how excited and happy they are, you’ll become just as excited as they are.
But, we also know that the first day of school sees a lot of us parents pacing around the home or job a little bit more.
Relax, it’s going to be a great year!
