Activities To Transition Back To School
No matter how your child is feeling about transitioning back to school this year, taking time to process and plan around the transition can help your child to feel more prepared for the year ahead. Below are some activities to help you and your child have conversations around the upcoming changes.
Note from Mightier Clinicians
It is common for kids – and adults – to have a hard time with changes and transitions. We are creatures of habit. Regular routines create feelings of safety and comfort — knowing what to expect reduces uncertainties and worries. Routines also save energy, neurobiologically-speaking, because they allow us to rely on automatic physical and psychological processes. So when one major routine ends, it’s often a good idea to find your next workable routine fairly quickly. Learn more about how Mightier helps kids manage their emotions.
