We are already in the middle of august and parents cannot be happier. The first day of school for some students begins at the end of the month, while others are lucky to have additional days off before their September 7th return.  But before your send your young minds back to the schools, you may want to upgrade in terms of how and what to expect when they make their return. Before all a parent had to do is shop and make sure that they are prepared and send them on their way, but today, there is a lot of things that young children deal with and parents need to make sure that the child knows that as well.

One of the things that all parents need to talk to their kids about is bullying. Let the child know if he or she is being picked on or teased physical and/or spiritually to report them to the teachers and to them. Let them know that they do not have to be afraid of the person and that they are doing the right thing by standing up and speaking out.

Another topic that should always be mentioned is peer-pressure. It mostly occurs at schools and play grounds that kids are exposed to different drugs and sometimes alcohol by their friends and strangers. Letting them know the harm it can do to them and the consequences of their actions will affect them greatly and that they should make the right decisions. It is also up to the parent to remain on high alert when it comes to their children to continue to monitor their behavior for any changes that may occur.

Last but not least, be open to anything that the child may have to say. Most parents in the household are like dictators. Keep in mind that there will be some things that the child may be exposed to such as sexuality, certain handicaps, etc. know that the questions are going to come, but don’t sugar coat what they see, talk to your children as the young adults they are. They will appreciate your honesty and respect you more by doing so.

As the school year is getting set to get underway, this is one final note to the parents. Don’t send your kids to school and think that it’s your free time. While your kids study, you need to do the same, parents nowadays cannot help their child with their homework due to lack of skill. If your child comes home with a D or an F, that grade reflects you as a parent as well. Get involved and treat every day of school as if it was the first.
