The first week back at school..

Monday, September 8th, 2008

We all survived the first week back to school. There always is that bit of anxiety both for patents and children. This year my children are in grade 5 and grade 2. So far they both seem to be happy with their new teachers and my daughter is slowly making some new friends. It seems to be easier for the younger ones to make new friends but the older they get, they really tend want their comfort zones and familiarities. One cannot blame them as there are lot of adults that don’t enjoy change. It took awhile for all of us to settle in last week and for me to reshuffle my own home, work and children’s school schedule. I think I’ve mastered pretty well. The key to everything is to remain calm and not make issues about the small stuff.
