The time with friends, the growing up years, the change in features, height and a lot of other things are all part of school days. The time when getting a remark in the calendar or two marks less in a test was a fatal situation or even when you had your first crush and life became a bed of roses suddenly, the conversations changed, there were more smiles, more tears more secrets and more blushes. The time when we didn’t want mom to find out and many other things, all when stitched together form a beautiful blanket called “School days”.


School days or the age, is a time when a lot of factors and decisions depends on the child’s parents and guardians, these decisions are based on their value system, expectations they have from their child and the future they would like to prepare them for or see as correct for their child.

School – must haves and must not haves are strongly governed and decided by school rules, child’s age and also by a child’s parents. These rules help discipline children and are there to form their personality that seems appropriate to society and to the parents. However, with time, place and situations things change, ideas evolve and perspectives also get revamped.

Going back to school

Going back to school is the time of the year when changes as well as rules and decisions are in order. However, in todays day and age we believe in a participative culture where most people believe in allowing their child to develop his or her sense of reasoning, discussing what they seem appropriate instead of making it a decision that is forced upon the child. However here are some school must haves and mustn’t haves that still stay.

School must haves: School supplies- The things that are always associated with going back to school- school uniform, school bags, bottle, tiffin box, stationery, crayons, geometry box et al. the list is an inclusive one. These things are requisites, however allowing your child to own a “WWF wrestle mania stationery set” instead of regular stationery or a angry bird water bottle over a regular one are part of house rules and parents view on how a child must be bought up. A balanced view of allowing a child to have some things he or she likes while buying some things that parents think are appropriate is a good middle path to walk.

Other must haves: Although these aren’t things but are absolute requirements, Children must get their books covered, bags packed, uniform size checked, school shoes and supplies in place before school starts.
