The first week back at school..

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.

Host and Care matches families in need of childcare with students looking for cheap living situations. Childcare can be an enormous expense for a single parent or a family with limited income and at the same time many students struggle to pay their living expenses while in school. Host and Care has developed a win-win situation for both parties.

Making new friends is important. It helps broaden the horizons of life. Friends in some sense, especially when you get older are some of the closest companions you can have… aside from wife/husnband/kids. Good stuff.

It’s important to encourage your child to make friends and talk to them about being a good friend. I think as parents we forget how important it is for our children to be social. Just as we encourage our child to do well in school and sports, its important to be a good friend. start young!

I think some parents have a tougher time letting their children grow up than the kids themselves who might be scared to leave home for the whole day.

During back to school season, you can search for a daycare using this cool website - Daycare United States That will help take some pressure off.
