The National Parenting Programme urges parents to make all of the necessary preparations and arrangements for their children returning to school for the new academic year.
Ensure that they have the required materials for the various subject areas, suitable clothing, shoes and other needed accessories.
Additionally, assist them in creating an appropriate schedule for studying, chores,bedtime and any other responsibilities that they may have.
Remember to continue supporting your children every step of the way, since the involvement of a parent/guardian in the life of his/her children makes a significant difference.
