Middle School is tough - but we lived through it! Let me tell you, things are A LOT different for our kiddos.
Remember when we hid a diary under our mattress? Now secrets are hidden on burner phones and behind apps that look like calculators. It's like someone decided middle school wasn't tough enough and then added a layer of secrecy to it.
Our kiddos are going to have a lot to figure out once they walk through the hallways of middle school. Let's look at how to make it easier.
Get the lay of the land. Parents - this is the EASIEST step you can take. Imagine the difference between starting school not knowing where ANYTHING is vs knowing it's two rights and a left to the cafeteria?
Schedules are the key to an amazing year or a soul crushing first week. Did you take the steps to ensure your child has the best shot at getting their classes?
Did you contact your child's current teacher to learn their input on where your child's strengths and weaknesses are - what questions should you ask?
As parents, sometimes we are so frantically trying to get through THIS YEAR that we forget to prepare for the next one. What happens then? We end up in the exact same place!
The transition to middle school is a big one - more teachers, more work, first dances - let's help our kiddos rock out this new stage in life with confidence! Yes things are different, but one thing is for sure - our kiddos need us!
There is no rule that says the moment you walk through the halls of middle school that you are organized, prepared and a master of time management! Despite the access to social media,our children are NOT prepred for everything that middle school has to offer. They need a guide - and that guide is you!
Let's find the ways to make this year a success!
