10 Steps Parents Should Take as Children Return to The Classroom 

September 3, 2021 - MJ Noor, Founder & CEO, Parents' Voice USA

Parents' fears are not necessarily the same as their children's. 

  1. Listening to your child’s concerns. Ask them if or what they may be afraid of. Ask what excites them about going back to school.

  2. Ask if your child is worried about having missed too much schoolwork, or if they are concerned about being competitive with other classmates. 

  3. Parents must pay special attention to soothing the emotional anxiety that their child may be facing by addressing their specific concerns.

  4. If your child has suffered through trauma or loss during the pandemic, it’s wise to communicate this to their teacher. 

  5. Rebuild your personal relationships with the teachers and other parents. Your child needs to feel they are socially connected. This will help to strengthen their mental well-being and feeling of belonging. 

  6. Be sure to separate your personal anxieties to better help your child manage theirs. 

  7. If your child is feeling the pressure of being behind, don’t ignore it. Ask the teacher for some extra study guides. Maybe organize a study group or develop a tutorial. Let your child know it’s not a reflection on them, but rather a symptom of losing classroom time due to the pandemic.

  8. If you have teenage children, stay connected with them. Let them know you love them and have their back. Teens and young adults, although they may feel grown up, they still need and will welcome the warmth and security a parent can give. Encourage them to hold on to family values and strengthen their resolve to shun peer pressure. 

  9. Have your child set goals and focus on their strengths. Help them to succeed and find their passion whether it’s music, sports, science, or whatever inspires them.

  10. Most importantly, encourage your child to do their very best in school. Make studying, reading, and school a priority. Limit video games and social media time. Let them know doing well is a steppingstone to a successful and prosperous future. 


Best of luck to all as you look forward to a great school year! 

3 Ways to Strengthen a Child's Mental Resilience

August 11, 2021 - Manisha Aggarwal-Schifellite, Harvard Staff Writer

Since the pandemic began, parents and researchers have been trying to understand how it affects children’s mental health. For 18 months, children have dealt with the disruption of their daily lives, fear of COVID-19 contagion, and sometimes death in the family. The emergence and spread of the coronavirus delta variant has renewed the uncertainty about young people’s safety as schools have started to reopen across the country. Read article

Is Sex Education Keeping Our Kids Safe?

Parental Opt-Out Rights for Sex Education in California

Attention parents! This is not your traditional sex-ed class. New materials have been mandated by law exposing students to sexually explicit curriculums.  

 

Do you know what will be taught to your children? Did you know that parents can choose to completely or partially opt-out of sex-ed?

Click on the button below for an overview of the new sex-ed course, the opt-out form, as well as for instructions on how you can let your concerns be heard.

Healthy Kids Survey

Many parents are unaware that this survey is being conducted in schools. Here is a sample of the high school version. An elementary school survey has also been designed. We are recommending that parents opt-out.
