– How to avoid stress after the summer holidays.
Parents do not need to immediately change everything in the life of a student and demand high results in their studies. In the morning you have to get up early and you can’t get away from it. But the load can be reduced and allow the child to walk with friends after school, while the days are still warm and long.
Weekends are best spent in nature or in the children’s entertainment center, because it will help to distract from the heaped up school worries.
You should not blame the child for the first negative assessments, because he has not yet tuned in to full-fledged study.
Praise him more, especially the first grader, because it is especially difficult for him. His life has changed radically. His surroundings increased significantly, as did the load. Constantly support him and praise, even for the hooks, carelessly written in a notebook.

– How to set up a child to study.
Motivate him to study, but not with banal phrases, like: “studying will help to live well in adult life”. Such motivation is not yet completely understood by the child and does not give the desire to improve knowledge.
We need to ask who the child wants to be and tell him which sciences will help achieve the goal. And also to tell that the knowledge of all other sciences will help to be an erudite and interesting interlocutor who can become a leader in the classroom or in their own environment.
In case of a categorical refusal of the school, it is necessary to find out the reason from the teacher and the child himself. Perhaps there was a conflict with classmates, a teacher, or difficulties in learning. It may be worth hiring a tutor, since children do not perceive their parents as learning assistants.
More interested in the personal life of the child, to be aware of all the changes and emerging problems.
