Enriching Education: How to Help Kids Adjust to Going Back to School



Kids who participated in school through video conferencing during the pandemic face challenges that go beyond lagging studies, Dr. Brad says. These include typical back-to-school emotions of excitement and nervousness augmented by other issues adjusting to in-person learning and social situations. His tips for helping kids readjust include:


1. Talk them through the changes. Remember to take time to talk to your kid about what to expect this year. This can help them mentally and emotionally prepare for what will be different.


2. Create a routine. Be consistent with their morning and nighttime habits, and make sure they get enough sleep and eat healthy, balanced meals each morning and night after school. Beyond this, “Think about other routines you’d like to create with your child. Perhaps you take a walk together each afternoon, share something you’re grateful for that day before dinner, or play your kid’s favorite song on the drive to school each morning.”


3. Make space to talk about feelings. Let your kids know it’s natural to have feelings of anxiety when things are changing. When there’s no hesitancy or shame around sharing these feelings, it becomes a lot easier for kids to process them in a healthy way, with your help.


4. Plan playtime. Kids, just like adults, need time to relax. When they first get home from school, it can be a good idea to just give them some unstructured time to do whatever they want.


5. Watch for possible signs that they’re having difficulty adjusting. Stomachaches, trouble sleeping, headaches, potty training regressions, and bedwetting can all be signs that your child is stressed. If you start to notice these symptoms in your child, you may want to talk to a medical professional to learn more about ways you can help.


6. Try energy healing. Energy healing methods such as The Emotion Code® and The Body Code™ can help kids release any emotional issues that make it harder for them to succeed at school.


“Perhaps they’re nervous about making new friends, or they are worried about being away from you all day,” Dr. Brad says. “Energy healing can be a powerful tool for anyone who is struggling, and kids are no exception.”
