Our children seem to always be in transition. One important transition is that from grade school to middle school. The transition to middle school is accompanied by other transitions. In addition to the academic changes, your child will experience physical and emotional changes. Getting to class on time

Changing classes; remembering which class to go to next

Here are some parenting tips to help your child transition to middle school:

1. Visit the campus before school starts. If your school offers tours and orientations, attend them with your child. Additionally, take your child (and maybe her friend as well) exploring. To get to know the teachers, attend school functions like open houses and parent-teacher nights. Volunteer for activities at school.

2. Encourage your child to stay involved. Middle school provides the opportunity to join sports teams, clubs and other extra-curricular activities.

3. Help arrange weekend activities. Using weekends for social activities with friends from grade school or the neighborhood will ease this transition by providing familiar faces and activities.

4. Talk about social skills.

5. Continue regular family activities. The comfort of regular family activities can help in this transition. Help your child work out an organizational system for getting assignments done. Acknowledge the anxiety he may have over the workload and work together on a schedule for study time, break time, chore time, family time, etc.

6. Teach your child to advocate for herself.
