First day of school questions and answers

How to prepare a child for the first independent “trip” to school?

Make sure your child knows the way to school and is safe. The child must know how to behave at the crosswalk, what to do if someone accosts them. There should be reflective elements on your clothes or backpack, even in the city. It’s also a good idea to make an appointment with your child to call you when they safely reach school.

Until what year is it not an embarrassment to lead a child to school?

It all depends on the location. When your child is away from school, a ride-on car should be no problem at any age. Parents know their child best themselves and should know if they can handle it. It is important to be in touch with your baby by phone. It is also good when a child does not go alone with his friends.
