While the transition back to school in Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach has many benefits, students will have different reactions and will have received varying levels of support and instruction during zoom schooling. Different age groups will struggle slightly differently, but it is important to remind all children to wear a mask, wash hands and watch distance. Additionally, all children can benefit from implementing a morning routine so they can get back to the rhythm of getting ready for school as well as after school routines to ensure they can complete homework and maintain a balanced schedule of activities. Slowly, adding extracurricular activities and social activities to your child’s schedule can help them adjust as they were used to staying home all the time.
Monitoring your child’s emotions will also be important as they return to school. You should check in daily as well as weekly if possible. As children may worry that another shut down or disease pandemic may occur, it is important to reassure them that regardless they will be supported. Children and teens can also can benefit from expressing their emotions through journaling, art projects or music. Parents can help their child to make healthy food choices and teach them mindfullness/yoga to stay calm and deal with the stresses that will come with the new transition.
