New Kid in School

school boyAs the new kid in school, it will take some time to adjust.  It has been at least a few weeks since school started and it is a good time to check in with your child to see how they are adjusting to their new school.  This transition takes time, so you want to keep the lines of communication open and make the effort to continue the dialog.  Ask them some questions and see how they are interacting with their new classmates and teachers.  If they are getting invited to activities and have begun to make friends, chances are they are beginning a successful transition.  However, if your child is aloof and their behavior has changed, you may want to take some extra time to sort things out.  Pay some extra attention to see if this melancholy is temporary or requires intervention.  You know your child best.  If they are having difficulty and need help, seek it right away.  It is best to intervene early to help your child transition successfully and overcome their challenges rather than wait until it becomes serious.
