Whether you are a family with a preschool-, elementary- or high school- age child, this time of year can be a big transition for everyone. Your carefree summer becomes a more regimented fall. Lifestyles change just as the seasons change. Making it through this transition may well feel like a mammoth venture, like raking a yard full of wet leaves. There are, however, some things you can do to help manage the transition back to school.
Finally, keep in mind “this too shall pass”. We will always get through to the other side of these transitions, and we get better at doing so with practice. Each age transition will present new challenges. Approaching these with openness to possibilities will prove most beneficial to the outcomes. Good luck!
