Fresh starts carry great promises. Each one is a second chance at changing our habits and behaviours to get it right this time. When it comes to education, although children are aware of and excited by fresh starts, they often lack the skill set to bring about changes, even if they do have the initiative.
Most parents not only share their children’s hopes for the new school year, they’re also more likely to see the bigger picture. Habits don’t change on their own. It takes consistency and determination to adopt new habits and let go of the ones that no longer serve us. Many parents comment that they are in disbelief with how quickly their kids are growing up, and every September is a reminder of this passing time.
