Read a book with an encouraging message to reinforce to children that they survived the last big school challenge and that they will do just as well in the next new grade.

The Dr. Seuss children’s book Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is a popular choice for high school graduates, but its message about the possibilities of a new beginning speaks to children of any age. The classic begins this way: “Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away! You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”

To create a lasting memory, ask your child’s teachers to sign the book, either at the beginning or end of each school year. When it is back to school time again, pull the book off the shelf and reread it with your child.
