Q:

How can I help my daughter adjust to her new school?

My daughter changed school a month ago, but still is not adjusting with the routine. She misses the old school environment and friends. Any suggestions, please.

This is an interesting article. Its a good tip for parents to accompany their child and introduce them to new friends. Kids are really shy to initiate on their own.

I would like to share a few tips from an article I read on education.com for successful transition from one school to another.

Try reading "Harry the Happy Caterpillar Grows" with your child.The story centers on Harry,a caterpillar that has a fantastic life full of games, friends, school and leaf eating. He is stunned when, one day at caterpillar school, he learns that he is expected to  build a chrysalis and become a butterfly. Harry vows to remain a caterpillar forever, as his friends build their chrysalises and move on.  Eventually, Harry  learns to accept change as a necessary part of life, and  joins his friends as a butterfly. There are tips in the back of the book to help parents and educators use the story as a vehicle to help kids talk about their feelings about change, and teach them coping strategies to manage their anxiety.
