September is always a very difficult month for families who have students. To adapt to the educational process is necessary not only to students but to the entire environment. Therefore, from the first days of the school year should go to hard mode of the day, which as confirmed by experts, will allow to overwork the kids and free time for rest. There are a few rules that you should follow. Student need to Wake up at the same time — 6.30–7.00. In school a child gets tired of sitting hours in the same position, moreover, often he gets in a stressful situation. So after school, the student should be allowed to walk in the fresh air or to take it to the sports section, where he can "let off steam".
For elementary school students daytime sleep is still important, so do not rush to force the son or daughter immediately after lunch to take for homework, better give them an hour and a half sleep or just relax. But remember that the lessons need to sit not later than six o'clock in the evening. Experts say that in first grade homework should take no more than 30 minutes a day.

Fathers and mothers must give the child more independence, not to sit next to him during lessons, and also do not specify categorically in error. You need to avoid the phrase "this is bad", "this is wrong", "it's dirty" etc. Better to put it mildly: "think again", "it's spelt differently", "try again", etc. Also parents need to closely monitor physical and psychological condition of the child.
