It is a very special day, the day of the first grade, among the most special in a person’s life… it is beautiful, it is joyful, there are a lot of positive emotions inside it, but it is also a difficult day, because to be so nice for dear parents, it takes a lot to know, yes really a lot.
It requires first that we go back in years and think whether our parents succeeded in making us this dear path or not, and if not, what was done wrong for us not to do it.
It requires us to understand them, that you leave for a few hours the sweet home that gives you unlimited love, freedom and security and turn to another home that is much bigger and with more members, with much more rules, in a house where the face of mom, dad, brother, sister and grandparents are absent, you can’t see them as often as your eyes and heart want, even if you check every room of this big house…(school).
Naturally, the first day of school for these little girls also creates negative emotions such as anger, fear, anxiety, confusion, etc. And if parents and teachers are not able to manage these situations, this boredom can risk sending children to the point where they don’t like school anymore.
Therefore: Parents and teachers, be wise by understanding them, offering them even more love and support, be patient and never compare your child with your brother, sister or anyone else, everyone is unique in this world.
Tell them that to get to the top of a beautiful mountain we can’t go without going through stones and thorns.
Create security and conviction for children that this path is the best, it should be the most beloved, be persistent and do not give up, do not stop saying that “education is the most necessary task in life, to turn many uncertainties into security , ignorance in knowledge and life in love“!
Good luck children, parents, fellow teachers and every student throughout Albania and the whole world.
The last piece of advice for parents: “Don’t cry when you hand over your child“, to the second parent (the teacher), to the school, because it is one of the most beautiful moments, because this moment shows that your child is growing, but at the same time it is also the most painful moments in the life of parenting (heart beats fast, tears come out by themselves, separation seems very difficult), but your crying at that moment for the child can turn into a great uncertainty, maybe even a psychological trauma.
One of the questions that the child may ask himself in this type of situation is “why is mommy/daddy crying while she has told me so many nice things about school“, or “maybe this teacher won’t treat me well while mom left me crying“?.
Dear parent, cry as much as your heart feels at that moment, but only after you have made sure that your child will not see you.
