One of the secrets to success in school is a well-organized school routine. An organized schedule makes everything much easier, from waking up early in the morning to getting ready for school, homework, projects, and everything else.
How convenient is your family’s school routine? The tips in this article will help you manage your time, commitments, child’s activities, and all the other demands we face during the school year.
The importance of sleep.
A child is growing, but still needs 9 to 10 hours of sleep a night. This is difficult when a child becomes a teenager and begins to stay up late. But it’s important to make sure that your child gets the right amount of rest and the right amount of time. This makes it easier to get up in the morning and concentrate during classes.
Set a curfew
Curfews can be eliminated during the summer months, but during the rest of the year they can be a lifesaver. Start applying this rule a few weeks before the start of the new school year so you have time to get used to the routine. By the first of September, your child should already be transitioned to the new schedule.
What is a reasonable curfew for a teenager? You determine it yourself, taking into account how many hours a night a child of this age should sleep, what time you have to get up, what time you go to bed yourself. But remember to make exceptions for special events or activities.
Go shopping all year round
To get your child off to a smooth start to the new school year with all the school supplies they might need, it’s best to shop year-round, having a supply of everything they need at home. Buying extra supplies that are likely to run out quickly (sheets of paper, pencils, notebooks, and other items that you think need to be replenished throughout the year) is a good idea. Keep a box of items you will need at some point during the year for homework or projects. Folders, staplers, duct tape, paints and colored pencils, felt-tip pens, glue, wattan, all of these should always be on hand.
Hang a schedule.
A schedule in writing helps you get organized a lot. Keep the schedule in a place that is visible to everyone, such as on the refrigerator, in the hallway, or another place where your child will see it every day. A few times before the start of the school year, walk your child through the school schedule, explaining when he should get up, eat breakfast, brush his teeth, pack his backpack, what time he should leave the house.
Review the calendar daily, noting any changes. Make a note of what time your homework is due to be completed, when you have dinner.
Of course, there are always exceptions, but there have to be rules to see them.
Teenagers are easily thrown off the schedule, and a common obstacle for them is finding snacks after school. Unhealthy food only provides empty calories and interrupts the appetite. Healthy eating is a must if you want your child’s body and brain to develop as it should. Teach your child to warm up dinner, make simple meals, and make his or her own salad. At the very least, prepare a lunchbox that your child can open after school to eat before you get home.
