Moms, we are too hard on ourselves. We need to learn to let go.The need to be able to control and protect our kids are just natural. And I get that!We really need to just let it go. It’s better for both parent and child.
I’m not exactly a morning person, so waking up early has always been a struggle for me.Start introducing the primary 1 routine that you have worked out for your child whilst he/she is still in Kindergarten.This gives you ample time to see if it works out for both of you. Whether it’s, breakfast before shower or vice-versa.That way, we can help to minimise the many changes which is going to happen in Primary 1.
Start now, it’s never too early. Of course, it has to also be age appropriate.I’ve started practising simple things like getting my child to help out and take the rubbish out.Getting your child to buy groceries with you at the supermarket. Simple things like this can go a long way.It also helps both parent and child be more confident and assured. At least then, they won’t be in for a surprise.
You can help your child start by putting name labels on his belongings so that it wouldn’t get mixed up and lost at the end of the day.Children are forgetful and in the midst of having fun everything else gets forgotten.I have sad news to report. It’s pretty normal!
Teach your child to wash his hands to prevent illnesses to them and others, good hygiene habits are a must.
-Washing your hands before meals and after meals
-After going to the toilet
-After touching something dirty
The list of MUST DO and TO DO are never ending for us parents.No matter how prepared we can be it never seems enough for our kids.We can’t control everything that happens in our child’s live.
