Parents and Beam unite to solve the problem of the year! Falling toys, crying children, flying food: you know it’s almost time to go back to school. We have a few survival tips to help you overcome this tricky period. And if these are not enough, check the new Beam Reward we crafted to thrill you on the last shopping errands.
Surely somewhere in the UAE, some kids can’t wait for school to start, but we haven’t met them yet. Many parents instead, might have noticed that end-of-summer melancholy in their child’s eyes, and we bet many others are fighting against out of the blue, frenzied reactions when a school book is in sight. We feel them. Leaving their summer camp friends, the academic pressure as they move to the next grade level. Many challenges are coming up for your little warriors, and the best thing you could do is hear them out and help them find the right enthusiasm to get ready.
Here are some tips that can help your child come out of mourning for the summer:
1. Connect with the school friends
Have a back to school party with the other kids from class to get them energised, reconnected and have something to talk about throughout the first week.
2. Fun learning
Do some fun to learn activities to get into or back into the swing of things. Educational games are perfect for this!
3. Reset the morning routine
A morning routine helps your children predict what’s coming, what to expect and how to stay organised. If they’re younger, a checklist could be fun to follow.
4. Plan ahead
Get your children to have a bath or shower at night, so that’s one less thing to stress about in the morning. Keeping their uniform and shoes out also helps ease time pressure in the morning in case they want to sleep in a few more minutes.
5. Take your kids on the ‘back to school’ shopping errands with Beam
Empower them, as you would a king and let them choose their school accessories, shoes and clothes. Sounds like dangerous? No worries, a new Beam Reward will help you save your wallet.
