Why is the start of the school year always so stressful?

With all these school supplies, timetables to be mastered, extracurricular activities to be organised and good resolutions, this start of the school year stress is a real issue.

By the way, the magazines are not mistaken: everyone is giving advice “to have a successful start of school”, “to not stress”, and to just be perfect.

What I see with each new school year (apart from the fact that my children are growing up too fast!) is that the more my children are independent, the less anxious they are and the more I can deal with this new school year in a completely relaxed way.
I learned to let the things take their course, and they learned to be independent.I take the time to engage them in small challenges: manage the school supplies by themselves, choose their clothes according to the weather, do their homework alone and ask for help when they need it.
Well, the result is not always perfect, but things are developing.
This is the very principle of Family Pact, to give children missions, goals and challenges, because it gives them the opportunity to prove to us that they grow up well.

So long live the start of the school year!

Let us return to this idea of a board of points drawn by the children at the origin of Family Pact.
They constantly tell me that I was born in the Middle Ages and wondered whether television existed in my days. So I have my revenge...

Educating your child isn't always easy!

Being sometimes outdated by 2 kids is a classic situation. And I know this!
Especially having the feeling of a lack of listening and at the same time not being listened to.
This is where an idea emerged...
