If you are a parent – it is important that you help your child  make the transition from toddler to preschooler smoothly. Because – while physically and mentally  – there is very little difference between a toddler and a preschooler. A preschooler is faced with the huge challenge of adjusting to preschool.

As soon as a toddler becomes a preschooler – despite remaining almost the same size and shape – he is faced with a huge challenge. The challenge of emerging from the comfort of the familiar surroundings of the home and the familiar faces of adults in the house – and getting used to the outside world.

It is the first challenge in the life of a child.

A lot of times children are unable to make this transition smoothly.

When children join preschool – they are described as “difficult”. It is terrible for a child to get labelled like this and usually this is not the fault of the child at all. This is often the result of well-intentioned excessively loving parenting.

Coping at preschool is the first real challenge you and your child face together. Overcoming the challenge successfully can be a tremendous boost for life.

Try and give your child a taste of what life will be like when he goes to preschool – before he joins preschool. Introduce some discipline. A pinch of discipline at home can go a long way in keeping your child happy at school and play.

Encourage your child to persist at activities and not give up easily. Keep saying “Try it. You will get it if you keep trying” whenever you find him struggling.

Teach your child that while everyone has a right to come first sometimes,everyone has to take a turn at coming last. This will ensure that he is well-loved in school.

Begin working towards the transition from toddler to preschooler – much before your child starts going to preschool.
