Kindergarten ‘Khaos’- Going to School with Medical Issues


Help Schools with Kindergarten Medical IssuesAs a parent, the first day of kindergarten for your child is going to be one of the most emotional days you will ever have to deal with in your life. Your main priority is keeping your child safe, and you are about to put your child in the hands of someone else and hope they can do as good a job as you. You would probably even stay and help, if you could. What you can do is the next best thing: make sure the teacher and school have all the tools they need to keep your child safe.For starters, send your child prepared to interact with other children. This means a bit of extra encouragement to wash those hands after using the bathroom and putting a stop to those bad habits like nose picking and nail biting. Remember that your child is about to be immersed in a whole new world of germs.Make sure the staff is aware of any medical issues, but do not rely on what they know. You may know every single detail of your child’s issues, but it is going to take them a while to memorize all that, and, in the heat of a moment, memory can fail. Medical alert bracelets for kids can work wonders in those situations. Since medical alert bracelets for kids are completely different than adult medical alert bracelets, your child will enjoy wearing them and may even show off to the teacher, meaning that the teacher will be more apt to remember your child’s condition when it matters most.
