Dr Justin Coulson, from Happy Families, discusses the important topic of helping your child transition to boarding school.
Key points include:
- Talking it through so they know the transition is coming
- Visiting the school with your child so they can familiarise themselves with the school
- Giving them a little bit of experience with time away from home
- Chatting with them about contact strategies
- Talking to them about friends
- Asking the school how they can integrate with their school community better
