Handy Hints February 2016

Your child may find it emotionally challenging to deal with new surroundings, friends, teachers etc. The big physical change is, for many, less physical activity.

Schools unfortunately struggle with time and space for running around and using your body, but at the age of 5 or 6 it is very unnatural to be sitting down so much. Sitting for long periods is in fact bad news at any age! So, after school pick up, make time and opportunity for your child to have a good run around. If you have a back yard, use it!
Maybe meet in the park down the road for an afternoon play with some newly acquired friends. This serves physical needs and it helps socialising skills both for your child and for you.
