HOUSTON -- Establishing a normal school routine can be hard for children of any age after the long, lazy days of summer.

Dr. James H. Bray, a family psychologist and associate professor of family and community medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, offers the following tips to help make going back to school a less stressful experience for children and parents.

•Get kids into the school mode early. Many children have a summer schedule that includes staying up late and sleeping in. Kids need at least a week before school starts to get back into the school schedule.

•Develop a plan. Doing things like buying supplies and clothes, and finding out about schedules and teachers in advance, rather than waiting to the last minute, helps reduce stress for parents and kids.

•Talk with children about their fears and concerns and do some advance problem solving and planning.

•Get involved with your child’s school by getting to know the teacher and discussing their expectations.

•Talk to your children about what they want to accomplish and get out of their school year. Discuss their academic and social goals, but emphasize balance.
