97.5 Y Country Medical Minute – Back to School Tips

97.5 Y Country Medical Minute – Back to School Tips

Back to School Shopping – Check. Back to School Physical – Check. Back to School Haircuts – Check.  Ensuring your child will have an anxiety-free first day of school………. This week’s Y-Country Medical Minute quickly discusses the importance of ensuring your child is ready and worry-free about their first day of school for the 2018-2019 school year.

Tour the school

Whether it is a new school or the same as last year, take your child on a tour to familiarize them with their new daily routine. Allowing them to find their locker, play on the playground, and locate the restrooms will ease their mind for the first day.

Positivity is key

Point out the positive aspects of starting school to create positive anticipation about the first day of class. They will get to see their friends, make new friends and learn some really cool things they didn’t know before.


Consider starting your child on their school sleep/wake schedule a week or so before school starts so that the new schedule is not a factor on their first couple of days at school.

Find a Buddy

Find another child in the neighborhood with whom your child can walk to school or ride on the bus.
