For some children starting a new school, or going back to school, will be an exciting time. For others, this can be a trickier transition that may be a little overwhelming. You can help your child negotiate this transition in a positive way. Some ideas include:
-taking their favourite toy to school if allowed
-having something small and special in their pocket – like a cut out heart you make out of a scrap of fabric or paper
-If you wear a regular perfume or aftershave you could give their clothes a small spray so that they know you both carry this same scent even when you are apart.
-Or you could decorate their lunchbox or water bottle together so that they have a visual reminder of something nice you have done together to bring you to mind during the day. -You could also make a fun secret handshake or goodbye saying with them to mark your hello and goodbye at the start and end of the school day.

Transitions take time and there may be setbacks, and this is ok. Acknowledge these with your child alongside supporting them to think ahead to things they are looking forward to.

Good luck to all children - and parents - who are going to school this week. 📚

Your baby's skin is 10 times thinner than yours. That's why they can burn so easily.

But it’s simple to keep bath time safe:
• Put cold water in first.
• Top up with hot.
• Test with your elbow (or thermometer!).
• Put your baby in when it feels neither hot nor cold.

Happy bath time! Read our burns fact sheet for more https://bit.ly/3sugpzr #childsafety #parenting
