Back to School Fever: Ready na ba ang mga kids?
The school break is almost over: Handa na ba tayo sa back-to-school rush, kabayan?The school break is almost over: Handa na ba tayo sa back-to-school rush, kabayan?
Aba kailangan handa hindi lang ang ating wallet (ehem: allowance po), kundi pati na rin ang isip at kalooban, especially when it comes to the little kiddos.
Kung meron mang tatlong back-to-school items ang dapat matagal nang naimbento, ito ang mga kailangan nating lahat:
- Anti-tantrums vitamins
- Magic wake-up-baby pillow
- Self-functioning lunch box with an automated calendar of meal schedule?
Unfortunately, it could possibly take us another lifetime to have such things around. So for now, all we can do is—prepare.
Here are some tips to help ease you into the family’s school routine:
Start imposing earlier bed time rules—gradually.
Syempre dahil nagbakasyon, medyo nasira ang body clock ng mga kids. Para hindi sila mabigla, patuluguin na sila nang mas maaga—kahit one hour earlier every two days, hanggang sa umabot sa ideal bed time for school.
Gisingin na rin sila nang mas maaga habang bakasyon pa para hindi sila mabigla sa pag-gising nang extra-early for school.
Psych the kids up by talking about school, their teachers and classmates.
Don’t forget to make school sound like a whole lot of fun! Imbis na iwasan ang school topics sa everyday conversations, try reminding them of how much they enjoyed school.
Reminisce about the cool things they have done in school last year, or the games they have played with their teachers and classmates.
Make them all giddy and excited by taking them to the mall to shop for new school stuff.
Aminin mo, nung bata ka, sobrang excited ka for the first day of school dahil bago lahat sayo mula ulo hanggang paa. Naku, lalo na kapag ikaw yung pumili diba? Do the same for the kids!
Prepare your calendar for lunch box menus—and try the recipes!
Mars, alam naming nakakasakit ng ulo ang mag-isip ng ibabaon ng mga bata every day. So save yourself from the looming stress by researching about new lunch box ideas.
And to make sure na kakainin ng mga bata, try preparing them on the weekends before school and ask for your kids’ opinion.
