HOW TO HAVE A STRESS-FREE FIRST DAY
Three simple ways to keep first-day nerves at bay for the kids… and you
Excitement and nerves can easily bubble over on the morning of a new term, so here are three simple ways to maintain a feeling of calm. Firstly, give yourself a shed-load of time so you’re not rushing. Build in extra time to take the obligatory front-doorstep photo and have a little fun. Secondly, double check everything you may need now (below is a quick link to the 10 most forgotten school supplies), there’s nothing like a stressful search to find missing stuff to kick-start first-day nerves. Thirdly, don’t panic. First days often run behind, and whatever happens, it’s better to stay calm than get stressed.
