Milestone: All-Day School

Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not depend on your own understanding. In all your ways obey him. Then he will make your paths smooth and straight."

When your child graduates from preschool to school age they face the first big push of growing up and being independent.  This is a huge step in life. Your child is now expected to tie their shoes, zip their coat, use the restroom with zero assistance, open all their own lunch items, and even carry a lunch tray!

You can help prepare your child by giving them simple tasks to complete on their own and praising them for being independent. Some children have anxiety about going to school all day--read books about it, talk about it and pray with them to help assure your child they will be OK.

Remind your child that other people may not know about Jesus and what you believe. It’s ok to be kind and love those kids, too. It’s a great time to be an example and practice love like Jesus.
