Change can be difficult for any family member, whether it changes with school or a new activity. You can help by giving your child a firm structure. Let your child make some choices as well. Utilize traditions to note different transitions, but at the same time, be sure to hold on to some basic things in your life that will always remain the same. Finally, do not forget to schedule time for relaxing and peaceful activities.
- Give kids a visual planner or schedule so they know what happens throughout their day.
- Rituals such as bedtime stories can help children transition from one activity to a new one.
- Look for small, simple tasks you and your child can do regularly even during a chaotic time in your family’s life.
“Wherever possible, let your child make decisions about things that impact their lives.”
