Starting School: Preparing your child and you

Your little one has a new backpack, school shoes and uniforms.

You’ve ordered everything on the book list.

They’re as ready as they’ll ever be…

But, what about you?

Starting school is a huge transition for both kids and parents. It’s new territory for many of us, and with that comes new challenges.

Some kids will breeze in, wave over their shoulder and never look back. But, others will struggle, and as parents, we might struggle with knowing how to help them.

That’s what ParentTV is for!

At ParentTV, we bring together a range of child specialists to help parents navigate everything from lunchboxes to loneliness. In our selection of short, easy-to-watch videos, you can get tips, tricks and research-based insights from experts who know what it takes to help our kids grow, learn and thrive.
