“It is the end of the summer and all kids are wild as March Hares right now. It's like taming wild beasts to get them back into a routine. Things will settle down as school begins and you can see how it all sifts out. At least then your other sons have some place else to go all day and some structure and something else to focus on. Then you can see what is really going on with the oldest.”
Last Day of Summer:The last day of summer is important, it tops off how your summer went. Sadly for me, I had doctors appointments, hopefully yours will be better. Everyone is nervous or stressed today, here’s a tip to help! (Tip #6): Stop thinking about it and think of all the fun you’ll have!
First Day of School:You’ll feel nervous when you get there, but once you get to class and you’re there for a minute then you’ll love it! (If you get Mrs. Hill) If you feel nervous after your first period here are some tips to help (Tip #7): Find a friend. (Tip# 8): Go to the bathroom or get a drink. (Tip # 9): Find your next class. At lunch period just follow everyone else, sit by a friend and eat lunch.
Second Day and Dealing with Bullies:The second day is the same as the first, but you’ll start getting use to the schedule. (Tip #10): 7th graders are handy friends, they can give you other tips on how to survive 6th grade.
If there’s a bully at your school, stand your ground and don’t let him get to you.
Example (this really happened to me):
Bully: “Your face is so fake it makes Barbie’s look real.”
You: “Oh! You play with Barbies?” (then look away)
