Take the following tips on how to stay healthy in school.  

Eat Breakfast.

Children need full breakfast before they go to school in order to have adequate energy needed for the whole day. Teens have more chances of missing their breakfast due to weight problems. Hence,  parents must educate their children that missing breakfast makes one person susceptible to many diseases.

Likewise, overweight problems are more possible. Breakfast as we all know, is the most important meal of the day for it is the start of all activities. If breakfast is missed, chances are the children will become weak and will overeat once they get home and during dinner. This act of overeating is bad for the health since it may result to obesity.

Washing hands after doing tasks most especially after using the toilet is the most essential form of hygiene. Why? This is because it is through washing hands that the germs are eliminated.

Elimination of germs which often cause sickness is the key to staying healthy. You may also use hand sanitizers but as long as water is available it is better to use it for hand washing.  

Sleep Well.

8 hours of sleep is the most recommendable sleeping hours for children and teens. The body will surely be able to recharge itself from the strenuous activities done the whole day. Through the replenishing activity of the body energy will be available again for the next day as you wake up.

When children don’t sleep well, they tend to be sleepy at school and their immune system will be lessened hence they become more sickly.

Water is definitely the safest liquid to take because it is a non-caloric drink which means you will not gain weight upon drinking it. Water also gives you the feeling of fullness which regulates your eating habit.

Moreover, water also provides the skin with proper hydration and makes metabolism work better.

Fruit For A Snack.

There are numerous ways to keep your children healthy even at school. It is very important to remember that educating the children about the importance of being clean and orderly as a basic principle in staying healthy.

With clean living, everything else follows.

 

Good Health At School

As a parent, we have all had the days when our child was too sick to go to school. And as we re-arranged our schedule to accommodate staying home with them, we probably thought about where they could have caught the bug.  Most likely, we will place the blame on the school.  But at the same time, how often do we send our children to school with a little cough or runny nose?  It’s a double-edges sword.   

          Here are some basic guidelines to follow when deciding whether to keep your child home or not. 

          Assess how they are feeling.  If they are tired and lethargic, or running a fever - they need to stay home.  Fevers are a good sign that your child is contagious and can make other children sick.  Be courteous to the other children and their families and keep your child home.  Your kid will thank you and so will the other moms. 

          If your child is feeling okay but has some common symptoms such as a runny nose, give them a cold medicine to help with the symptoms and teach them some basic hygiene tips.  When they blow their nose, have them throw away the tissue and wash their hands.  Or place a small bottle of hand sanitizer in their backpack and have them rub some on.  If they are sneezing, teach them to use their upper arm to block the sneeze.  This will help keep the germs from spreading and keep them off their hands. 

          Proper hygiene can help prevent your child from getting a cold or sick bug from someone else at school.  Have them always wash their hands after using the bathroom and before eating.  We can’t prevent all the germs from getting to our children, but we can do our part.

Safety Tips For School Kids

Travelling to and from school is often not very safe. However, there are some simple rules that can help to make the school journeys safer, ensuring peace of mind for both children and parents. 

  1. Waiting for the school bus in the mornings, while traffic is at its busiest, requires a degree of common sense. Try to have a safe place for children to wait at away from the street and heavy traffic. 

2.  Don't let children move close to the school bus until it has come to a complete stop and the driver has signalled that it is safe to board.

3. At the end of the school day when children leave the bus, instruct your child to move away from the vehicle at least a dozen large strides to a point where the driver can clearly see them. This helps the driver and keeps the child safe as well.

 

4. Instruct your child to keep a close eye on all traffic near to the school bus. The law has some special protection measures for school buses, but car drivers are only human, and they can and often do make mistakes.

5. If your child walks to school, make sure he or she wears reflective material. Aim to make them as visible to as possible to all drivers. This will help to avoid accidents.

6. If a child rides a bike to school, instruct them to walk the bike through intersections, observe all traffic light signals, and be wearing reflective material. They should also be with a friend if possible as one can help to look out for the other.

7. If you take your own child to school in your car, always have older children in a seat with a safety belt on, younger children in a booster seat with a safety belt on, and very small children in special safety seats, all seated in the back with only you, the driver, in the front.

Immunization

         There is a lot of information out about immunizing your child, and a lot of opinion and controversy, for and against. There is a lot of mis-information available as well, again, for and against.  No matter what choice you make, these are things you need to do before your child can start school. 

         Before your child starts kindergarten, he or she will need to have a physical performed by a doctor. Your school should provide the forms, including the immunization paperwork.

 

          If you have completed immunizations, the nurse can complete the dates for all the shots and give any that are still needed.  If you have chosen not to immunize, you will probably need to make an appointment with the health department. 

         This will vary from state to state. In Utah, you have to meet with a nurse who will tell you all the harmful effects to your child by not immunizing.  You have to stick to your decision, and then they sign the waiver.  There can be a lot of pressure on you if you have chosen not to immunize your child.  Make sure you are well informed and can explain your choice. 

          As your child progresses through school, they may need boosters to their previous shots.  When they begin junior high, they will need all the paperwork completed again, or copied from the elementary school. 

          Whatever choice you make with your children and their health, make sure you are aware of the pros and cons and make your choice wisely.  It’s often easier to immunize and avoid the pressure that is associated with choosing not to. 

 

However, if you feel strongly about not

subjecting your children to the shots,

be informed about your choice.

 

Make the right choice for you and your children.

 

We Are All Graded 

          In elementary school, your child’s grades will probably not show themselves as A’s and B’s but most likely S’s and N’s.  Elementary schools tend to avoid the labelling of grades.  It can be more difficult to find areas that your child needs help in. 

          When junior high and high school come along the grades will be more important.  You can teach your child early on about the importance of grades in a positive way.  Grades are not the tell-all answers to how smart a person is, but merely a guide or tool to determine how well your child understands a particular subject. 

It’s important not to over-emphasize the importance of the grade, but more the effort that is put into school in general. Since each child is different, try not to compare one child to another.  While your oldest might make an effort and get A’s, another might make just as much an effort and get C’s.  Help your children to have the self-confidence to be happy with their best effort despite the grade. 

          When your child isn’t doing well and isn’t trying, you have a bigger problem.  Starting your child early on about the importance of school and learning can help them make the right choices as they get older.  How well they try in school can affect how well they try in the real world.  Teach them the proper skills and tools to be confident in all they do and things will be easier for them. 

 

          If your child is really struggling in a subject, help them to understand that everyone can’t be good at everything.  Find areas that they are good in and help to feel good about what they can do well.  And help them work on the areas that they aren’t as good at.
