Not only selecting the best school for children is very important but helping them out to adapt in its environment is equally challenging. Parents get stressed when their children say, “I don’t want to go to school Mom. I don’t like the school’s atmosphere”.
Being a parent, you can never easily give up. You might wish that you had a magic wand and a spell that would ease out all your stress. Don’t worry I have got a list of few spells which you can adopt and see the magic yourself.
Calm their fears and assure them that they can handle it
Your child might have the fear of meeting new people or answering the questions his/her teacher is going to ask. Calm your kid by telling them, “I know you are strong and you can do it. Remember when you were a kid and I took you to a party. How amazingly you bonded with other kids and trust me people loved you for that.” This will ease out their stress. Let them also know that you are always there for them whenever they need you.
Convey to his/her teacher to bond with the child differently

When kids love their teacher then they are bound to feel safe in the school. It is teachers after parents who are considered to be beautifully building the future of the child. Contact his/her teacher and ask her to pay attention to your child. This way he/she will feel connected and love going to school.
Arrange a party and invite his/her classmates for interaction
What a better way than this. Sometimes there is a lack of interaction among students that distances them. Being an adult, we must solve that out. Arrange a small get-together with games and snacks. Invite all his/her classmates to the party and let them connect to your child. This way they will feel positive about you and can easily make new friends.
Early bedtime and peaceful mornings will let them cool out
Many times, a poor sleeping pattern causes frustration and irritation in the child. Lack of sleep may lead to anger and mood swings. He/she may, therefore, opt for not going to school. Schedule their sleeping and waking time that will lead to a happier mood.
Stay alert when he/she is worried and stay connected with them
There are times when children won’t convey how they feel. So, stay alert and understand that when he/she is worried and when it is important to guide them. This can be because of school or various other reasons because of which he/she is unable to adjust in school. Snuggle them and give your 100% attention to them. Note that never silent them and listen to what they have to say.
