Teach Them To Expect Change

Change is a part of life we can’t avoid. Parents need to be good examples to their children on how to walk through seasons of change.  Teach your children that change is inevitable and fighting it only makes the transition harder.

Remind them (and yourself) that things will not be the same as when they were in 2nd grade or before a new baby arrived.  Some children struggle with change more than others, prepare them as far in advance as possible for change.  Allow time for adjustments and offer a lot of encouragement.   Even changing curriculum can slow down a student for a few days.
