Back to school




To make sure that the right year begins, you must prepare your child for the start of the new school year.
preschoolers
Go to your pediatrician to make sure that all the necessary vaccines have been given. Also make sure you have ophthalmological and ENT control.
In addition to the routine vaccines (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella and hepatitis), there is the flu and measles vaccine. After you make sure it is vaccinated, you should discuss with your pediatrician and other issues. E.g:
• many food allergies are incorrectly diagnosed (a check with the allergist is recommended);
• begins regular teeth cleaning and fluoride treatments;
• almost 70% of the wounds that appear on the playground are caused by falling on asphalt or concrete (make sure that there are wooden or soft surfaces on the playground);
Scolari
Take him to an ophthalmologist and take a break from vaccines for now.

Vaccinations are no longer needed for children who have been well immunized during kindergarten, and for those suffering from asthma, flu vaccines are needed.
The backpack should not be heavier than 20% of the child's weight. Heavy objects should always be placed at the bottom.
Talk with the school nurse about certain conditions your child suffers if necessary (eg diabetes, asthma) and make sure he or she can get help in an emergency.
Arrange a space in the house especially for the student or any other activity related to the school and limit its access to the TV to less than 2 hours a day. Advise him to take frequent breaks in order not to tire his eyes and to have a better performance.
teens
Specialists recommend a tetanus vaccine and 2 other meningitis and HPV vaccines for girls to protect them against genital warts and cervical cancer.
Make time to talk to your child about sexuality, contraception, drug use and other issues.
Last but not least, make sure your teen goes to regular medical checkups.
