Psychological changes in children early in school

Most children in preschool age have reactions, uncomfortable when having to leave relatives to go to a new environment. The first time children go to school is not a simple matter of going from home to school. If parents do not have a well-prepared plan, the child is very susceptible to psychological trauma, which can affect the child's psychological and physiological development in the future. Normally, in the first days of school, parents can notice that the baby has changes such as: irritability, more clinging to parents, loss of appetite, weight loss, sickness ... These manifestations usually last from 1 - 2 weeks (or maybe longer, depending on the situation). Parents can help babies overcome by:

- Take your child to get acquainted with school before starting school.
- Talk with your child about the benefits of going to school such as: having many friends to play with, having many interesting activities at school.
- Encourage your child to ask questions and respond politely to teachers.
- Teach children more skills needed when going out: learning skills, self-care skills, communication skills, skills to respond to danger.
- Encourage your child to have fun and interact with classmates.
- Let your baby sleep early to go to school to be alert and not tired.
