In such a case, it is the utmost duty of the parents to safeguard their children with the best of efforts in practice. As a part of this action, parents must make sure that in case the child is using school/ public transport, then the pick and drop point of the child should be nearest to the home.

This is the time, which can be best executed to train children with various tricks and techniques, which can be truly useful to defend themselves in case of troubles or challenging situations.
Schools are the learning grounds for the children, where they get introduced to formal learning. This is the pace which showcases the true meanings of seriousness and responsibility to the children and students learn to adopt the same characteristics as a part of their daily life. It is only with the well- designed and properly executed training sessions of the schools, that children learn to value education and know the true meanings of life and various societal factors. They, along with getting introduced to the innumerous demands of life, also get prepared for the challenges they might face as a part of their life journey.

To eliminate such negative thoughts from the minds of the children, schools need to work on their image building exercise, for which summer vacations can prove to be the absolute time. This time period can be appropriately used by the schools to redesign the school ambience strictly in alliance with the learning needs of the children. It should not only be regulated in coherence to the needs of the toddlers, but the interests and the changing technological requirements of the developing minds of the teenagers should also be taken well care of.
Hiring the essential staff
This again counts as a crucial preparation that must be executed during the respective holidays time. To accomplish this effortlessly, a comprehensive list of all the teaching resources should be made handy and the gaps should be filled by hiring the right talent for imparting quality education to the students. In the process of hiring, schools must make sure that teachers along with being intelligent and innovative, also possess the quality of being compassionate towards the young minds. It is because patience is considered to be a powerful tool, which acts as a magic wand for the teachers to handle the students politely and even in a very effective manner.
Ensuring proper working of all devices

Incorporating essential tools for the children
Students when coming to school, they are unaware of the various complexities and codes of conduct, which are mandatory to be followed. Therefore, to enlighten the students with these important factors, many resourceful tools are required to be implemented in the school premises itself. This can include the placement of helping desks at various floors of the school along with the setting up of technical screens customized with Artificial intelligence, to answer the much-complicated questions of the students. Also, technology in the classroom can help in many ways, such as offering movement breaks to assist learning periods and get exercise.
Assuring adequate food and water supply
This assuredly is the utmost need of every excellent educational institution, to facilitate its students with the best food and water supply. Along with the ample supply, the schools are also required to provide quality service in both the fields. There needs to be a quality check in every school with regard to the food and water supply, for which the administration of the school must take hold of every single thing. This includes the food that is sold in the canteen to the tea that is served to the teachers and the water that runs through the school taps.
Ensure the presence of a qualified medical team in the school premises
Any emergency situation can come uninvited, so it is a fundamental duty of the school to have a qualified and dependable medical staff in the premises. This allows the school to take care of any unexpected situation that may arise due to the ignorant and childish behavior of the students. Also, these factors give confidence to the school management to handle any of the tough situations easily and make sure that the first aid is given to the students, in case of the emergence of any tricky or out of control situations.
With the accomplishment of all the above mentioned steps, it gets quite easy for the schools to handle the developing needs of the students as well as approves the students to accommodate themselves in the relatively new environment of the schools.
Moving, the blog will talk about the steps that the school and parents should ensure, when the school session begins.
#Steps to ensure when the school session begins, after the summer vacations
It would not be wrong to say that the challenge actually begins when the schools sessions commences and students start attending the classes. A series of calculative steps have to be taken into consideration by the parents and children to ensure a smooth accountability with the school resources and the tools.
A peaceful morning activity
The toughest task to accomplish even before sending a child to school, is to wake him up. This needs to be done really tactfully, as this is the step that ensures the positive or the negative behaviour of the child throughout the day. This can be done by softly massaging the head of the child and showering him with loads of kisses and love early in the morning. Also, this should be done by either the father or the mother, whosoever is more loved by the child. Once the child has woken up, then the parent can take him to the nearest park for charging up the child with a playful attitude.
Dress them up all smiling
This step is possible to be attained with an added smile, only after the child gets charged up with a lively mood. Therefore to be able to dress the child in an easy and quick way, then his mood should be first lifted up and then only a thorough supportive behavior can be expected from him. This would additionally pep him up for an optimistic beginning of the day and would keep him loaded with high energy throughout the day.
Pack a healthy tiffin for them
Along with infusing him with the rightful energy, parents are also required to take good care of the health of the children. For this, the parents have to make sure that the tiffin of the child is packed with healthy food items. This might range from cooked vegetables with chapati to sandwiches, rolls and fruits. In addition to taking care of the nutritional value of the food, the likings of the child should also be kept in mind. This would increase the chances of the lunch getting eaten up by the child in full portion.
Drive them to the bus stop or the school with a mission to accomplish
It is the morning thoughts that matter to a great extent in shaping the day of the children. Therefore, while driving the children either to school or even to the bus stop, parents must ensure that their mind is consciously fed with positive ideologies. As discussed earlier, the teachings that come directly from the parents in compliance with the real time stories, stay in the mind of the children for really wrong. Also, such activities strengthen the parent- children bond as this marks to be a quality time act between the two.
Greet them back with a welcome hug
Unquestionably, the time that children spend in school is passed by the parents in deep concern. They are always worried about the whereabouts of the child and keep thinking of his activities. This is because when the child comes back home, the parent makes sure to welcome him back with immense love and affection. This is done to ensure that children feel secure and loved again, once they are back from the stressful day at school. This is especially required for teenagers, who have loaded day at school.
In addition to the strenuous study requirements, the youngsters also go through a lot of image building stresses, so the compassionate attitude of parents act as a pillar for the students, to support their emotional needs. Thus, providing a warm and positive atmosphere is highly imperative for the mental growth of a child.
Inculcate good manners
This should be done from the very beginning of years, when the children start going to school. The inculcation of positive behaviour can be done easily with the help of very simple activities of motivating children to remove their clothes by own to keeping the same at the defined places. In addition to this, children should be taught about respecting elders and valuing the efforts made by others for bringing a smile on their face.
Assure they eat a proper lunch
After welcoming them with a warm smile and affectionate attitude, the parents must offer fresh and properly cooked food to children, once they have freshen up and changed their clothes. This is certainly important as food is not only important to feed the stomach but is also a crucial ingredient for the growth of mind. It is when a child eats healthy food, then his mind grows in a futuristic direction, therefore, the parent must give proper food to the child after he comes back from school. Also, because of the long summer vacations, it gets really tough for the children to get back to their food eating schedules, so extra efforts need to be made by the parents and the children together to get back to their daily routine.
Plan their sleeping time
This again is quite tough to achieve, keeping in mind the unbalanced schedule, which children get used to follow during their summer holidays. Therefore, it is highly advisable to start practicing the sleeping activity much before the start of the school time. Or in other cases, this habit should be sustained throughout the summer holidays as well. This not only gives some additional rest to the childâ€™s body but also gives his mind a break from the constant mischieves that it plans throughout the day. In case the parent is not home, the children should have a set schedule to follow and he should be strictly instructed to follow the same.
Devise a workable study time for them
A fixed time table for study is assuredly important for the child as it trains his mind to work according to the set guidelines. In addition to this, regular study time, irrespective of the age or the class level of the child, keeps him in touch with the daily updatations in the syllabus. Also, the parents should motivate children to co study or self study according to the class and subject difficulty level. Moreover, daily revision of class work and completion of homework should be made a habit for the children. These activities should form a part of the daily tasks that children are made to do on a daily basis.
Let them socialise with friends
To let the mind of the children grow, it is important to let them meet individuals of different social groups. This allows the young minds to have an orientation of their own and charge them with the power to have innovative thinking. Also, friends are known to be the best support after family and in today;s technological world people are forgetting the true meanings of friends. So, in order to retrieve the true connotation of friendship, it is necessary for the children to move out of the house for sometime and indulge themselves in outdoor activities. Moving further, sending them to parks or some other recreational centres can prove to be a good exercise for their body as well.
Instill a habit of early dinner and early sleeping
Finally after a long day of studies and play, the parents need to encourage a habit of early dinner in their children. Further to this, children should also be motivated to sleep on time and one must make sure that bedtime stories should not be missed during this hassle. The time that children spend at school is evidently essential for both the parents and the children to foster their relationship in a positive direction and provides them defined goals to be accomplished on fixed intervals.

Along with this, teachers can also use affirmations as a means to mark a great beginning of the session. In order to make students more comfortable, teachers can conduct some recreational activities in the morning assembly such as quiz and summer vacation experience sharing.
Building a positive teacher-student relationship:
Children need support to adapt to change. Thus, teachers should make it a point to extend this support to students after they come back to school, by strengthening their relationships with students.
