"Let's Avoid Stress When Your Child Enters a New School Year, Do This Starting Now"

Dream - In late May until mid-June, a number of students are taking exams for grade promotion and graduation. The holiday will last until early July and they will return to school for the new academic year. Facing this new academic year often causes parents to feel stressed, as they sometimes have to adapt to their child's new routine. Especially for those who have children who are just starting elementary school, junior high school, or high school, the school culture and preparations will certainly be very different from before.

To Avoid Stress When Your Child Enters a New School Year, Start Doing This Now

"Not to mention the habit of children relaxing during holidays must be changed. It is not uncommon for children to have difficulty in returning to the discipline of waking up early and getting back to the school routine."

"Parents often get stressed, you know. For a whole month, children are on vacation and parents relax at home. In welcoming the new school year, suddenly everything changes, they have to wake up early, parents also have to help prepare their children. This can make parents anxious and affect the mood of the child," said Ririn Basuki, Communication & Public Relation Manager of IKEA Indonesia at the IKEA Back to School event in Jakarta, June 6, 2024."

"Nah, let the holiday transition feel 'smooth' without too much drama from the children, try doing this, Mom and Dad."

1. Prepare the Necessities

The first thing that is easy to do from now on is to prepare the child's necessities. Starting from uniforms, stationery, to other school supplies. Fabiola Priscilla, a family psychologist who also attended the IKEA Back to School event, suggests that parents buy the necessities well in advance.

"Parents are advised to buy children's necessities well in advance. Invite your child to make a list of school supplies that need to be bought. The goal is to buy necessities directly, not wants. Usually, if the purchase is rushed, what is bought is a want, not a necessity," said Fabiola.

2. Return Children's Routine

"Holidays definitely make children more relaxed. If not prepared to return to school routines, children will certainly have difficulty returning to the habit of waking up early in the morning and other school routines. For example, during the holidays, children are certainly free to sleep and do not need to wake up early. In addition, children are also certainly free to watch and play with gadgets."

"Parents should return their children's sleep patterns at least one to two weeks before entering school. Children need 8 to 10 hours of sleep based on their age," said Fabiola. In addition, before entering school, ask the child to prepare their own needs. Just remind them but let the child do it themselves to develop a sense of responsibility. "Make sure the children have prepared their textbooks, uniforms, and shoes in the evening. Don't let everything be prepared in the morning. If everything is prepared in the morning, there is a high chance that the child and parents will be stressed, rushed, and eventually there will be items left behind or missed school," said Fabiola."

3. Mental Preparation

Apart from preparing school supplies and children's habits, Sahabat Dream also needs to prepare children's mental state. Invite children to start getting used to school schedules so that they won't be stressed when starting school. Parents should also relax and avoid appearing stressed in front of children. Fabiola revealed that the stress and emotional condition experienced by parents certainly affect the child's mood.

"Stressed parents can affect their child's mood. Therefore, moms and dads should try their best not to get stressed. They can create a simulation of the first day of school. Involve the child in learning to socialize and create simulation examples of situations that the child will face, such as introducing themselves in front of the class or simulating making friends," said Fabiola.

4. Build Communication with the School

In the process of learning and educating children, of course, the school is involved. Therefore, parents must build good communication with the school. "First and foremost, as parents, we must instill that parents and schools are partners who must establish good communication for the success of children's education," said Evert F. Fanggidae, Headmaster of SD BPK Penabur Pondok Indah who also attended the same occasion.

The following is the translation of the given 'Bahasa' text to 'English' while preserving any html tags: "That is to ensure a more comfortable adaptation process for children in the new academic year. Usually, through WhatsApp groups, the school will convey information related to this matter. "Parents are also expected to entrust their children to the school. Teachers will do their best to educate and take care of the children at school. Parents are also expected to work together to do their best in educating their children at home," he added."

5. Create a Comfortable Learning Space

Creating an ideal learning space for children is equally important. Besides school, children will also spend a lot of time at home. Parents certainly want their children to feel comfortable and be able to concentrate on studying at home, right? The study area and study furniture for children will certainly be different based on the educational level of the child. Preschool, elementary school, middle school, and high school children will have different needs for study desks.

"Sebagai contoh, anak yang berada di fase taman kanak-kanak cenderung suka bermain dan mengeksplorasi hal-hal baru di sekitarnya, orang tua bisa memfasilitasi dengan perabot seperti meja kecil, papan tulis dan perlengkapan yang bisa mereka gunakan untuk berkreasi," ujar Dimas Haryo Wirawan, Interior Design Manager IKEA Mall Taman Anggrek. Untuk memberikan pengalaman belajar yang maksimal untuk anak, IKEA menghadirkan furnitur dan perlengkapan anak menjelang sekolah lewat program Back to School sebagai inspirasi." "As an example, children in the kindergarten phase tend to enjoy playing and exploring new things around them, parents can facilitate this with furniture such as small tables, blackboards, and supplies that they can use for creativity," said Dimas Haryo Wirawan, Interior Design Manager of IKEA Mall Taman Anggrek. To provide a maximum learning experience for children, IKEA presents furniture and children's supplies ahead of school through the Back to School program as inspiration."

"IKEA as a solution for all shopping needs provides various products to support children's activities, such as study room furniture, stationery, and other supporting equipment that can foster children's learning spirit in this new academic year," said Ririn, Communication & Public Relation Manager of IKEA Indonesia.
